Our facilities include our landmark Main Building on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Perelman Building, located nearby on Pennsylvania Avenue, the Rodin Museum on the 2200 block of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and two 18th-century houses in Fairmount Park, Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove. We welcome you to enjoy a variety of activities for public audiences, including special exhibitions, programs for children and families, lectures, concerts and films.
Léger designed this monumental backdrop and the costumes for a ballet called “Skating Rink” in order to produce the effect of an abstract composition of moving color. See it alongside works by other 1920s modernists including Duchamp, Picasso, Gris, and Delaunay in “Léger: Modern Art and the Metropolis." Hurry, show closes on Sunday, January 5.
