Journey into the Barnes Foundation

The unnamed "friend" (who insist on maintaining her anonymity concerning all things on line) from my previous post and I visit the Barnes Foundation of the Fine Arts and Horticulture. My primary reason for visiting museums, art galleries and the like is to get inspiration for ways to artistically express the complex and diverse aesthetics that is Afrakan culture.

Interestingly enough, the Barnes Foundation's current site is where the Philadelphia Youth Study Center used to be. The YST was the first public school that I taught our American Afrakan Historical and Cultural Perspectives. I did it for little over two years.

Qatar Airlines Philadelphia Launch

A friend and I unintentionally crashed the dinner and reception for Qatar Airways that was  hosted by Philadelphia Mayor Nutter at Ritz Carlton. 

Though we missed much of the entertainment...

she and I were able to enjoy an exquisite meal all in the company of Philly's elite.
