CALL FOR SUPPORT: Our zoning hearing is coming up on Wednesday, January 15, 9:30 AM at 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor and we need your support! Anyone is welcome to testify in-person though our lawyer warns that they may not actually see us until later that morning. A helpful alternative is to write a letter of support for PhilaMOCA, here are some suggestions for content: explaining that PhilaMOCA is an asset to the city/community, explaining that PhilaMOCA is not harmful towards the community/youth, mentioning the uniqueness of the building and how it would otherwise be destroyed and replaced with condos, your personal experiences and feelings towards the space, you get the idea. Letters can be e-mailed to PhilaMOCA [GoFundMe is blocking the actual e-mail address, but it’s easy to find on our website] and we’ll hopefully be bringing a big stack of them to the hearing. The supportive words of performers, patrons, and professionals will all be helpful and we thank you for your time! This hearing and the raising of some additional funds are the only major obstacles in the path towards our reopening and we’re very hopeful that we’ll be back by March or April.

I see that a certain sort of film critic, possibly possessive, possibly possessed by a bias against the tube, insists upon claiming the third season of “Twin Peaks” for the cinema, despite its clear design as home entertainment for haunting your house. In reply, I offer this museum exhibition, which gathered about ninety paintings and drawings, made over five decades, as evidence that Lynch is too large an artist to bother with such trifling categorizations. The idea is transcendence, by any medium necessary. With a brush in hand, he gouges at the canvas by way of piercing his soul.
Martin Lewis died in obscurity in 1962; a retired art teacher who had found some success in his early career, but was largely forgotten after the Great Depression took away the demand for his craft, leaving Lewis to spend his last three decades teaching other people how to etch.

Joining the Philly restaurant scene at the very end of the year, this brand-new southern Italian eatery from Joe and Angela Cicala is a feast for the eyes, with gleaming chandeliers, plush seats, and antique touches.

When we think of Toll Bros., we think of condos. Projects from this developer in Philadelphia have included Naval Square, Stamper Square, 2400 South, and a now under construction tower on Jewelers’ Row. But Toll Bros. is a huge company and also has a rental arm, and that business is finally dipping a toe in the Philadelphia market. This effort will take place at the corner of Broad & Noble, on a property that’s currently used as a surface parking lot.
