No more AMOR at the Art Museum, Grace Kelly Museum News, Celebs in Philly & a Halloween Question
Good super Sunday morning. Get out, no really get out and enjoy this day. I’m going for a walk right now, then heading to Ian and Jamie’s Wedding. What a great day for a White Wedding!
Let’s chit chat Philly Gossip Sunday Morning
No more AMOR at the Philadelphia Art Museum
Unceremoniously the Philadelphia Art Commission has removed the AMOR by Robert Indiana Margot Berg, the city’s public art director, told me earlier this month
that the beloved sculpture would appear at the Sisters City Park and Logan Cafe in 2017, probably with a terrific ceremony.
The Grace Kelly home will not be a public museum.
It’ll be restored and will then can be seen by appointment only especially for visiting Monégasque citizens a family member tells me.
The Prince enjoyed seeing the house on Tuesday, and remarked to those gathered that it was exactly how he remembered it but much smaller.
(BTW Kristin Foote is not my source, I just liked her FB post.)
Philly native and former NBAer Cuttino Mobley stopped by Rumor last night, and posed for a photo with legendary doorman Tee Fish.
Martin Short finally got to perform on the stage of the Academy of Music stage this past weekend, after his show in January at the Academy Ball was cancelled because of nearly 20 inches of snow. He was joined by good friend Steve Martin and they both posed with Alicia Vitarelli who had a cameo in their production.
Dish of the week: Octopus at Fine Palate. Plus get the Baked Alaska for dessert.
I ran a question on my FB page for the best time to cut off trick or treaters. Looks like everyone agrees 8PM.
Monday I will have a post of notables in the best Halloween costumes.
Meet and Greet with William deVry from General Hospital
