Kimmel Center gears up for Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts

    The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts will not be overlooked. Unless you think you can somehow avoid three weeks, 31 commissions, 135 events, 140 partners and one giant cube.

    As part of the $10 million event, the Kimmel Center will turn its lobby into Paris’ La Ville Radieuse (Radiant City). PIFA’s cubic logo will be aglow outside the Broad Street for the duration of the event, which runs April 7 through May 1.
