FringeArts Historic Building Tour

October 30, 2018 5:30 pm

Curious about what goes on behind the scenes at FringeArts? Interested in learning more about the history of our converted theater and restaurant? Join us for our Historic Building Tours at FringeArts!

In 1903, Philadelphia became home to the first High Pressure Fire System. Decommissioned in 2005, the HPFS had led to a decline in fire losses and served as the backbone to the Philadelphia Fire Department for over a century. Today, the words “High Pressure Fire Service” are still on our building.

But this isn’t your average historic building tour. This is your chance to learn about how we’ve revamped the space to promote contemporary art as innovative as the history behind our building.

Grab a drink from La Peg and enjoy Happy Hour before or after your tour. You can meet our staff members by the “About Our Building” sign inside La Peg to begin the tour. Tours start at 5:30pm and run approximately 20-30 minutes.

Event Dates:
10/30/18 @ 5:30 pm
11/06/16 @ 5:30 pm
11/13/18 @ 5:30 pm
11/27/18 @ 5:30 pm

Repatriating Tribal Objects in the Digital Age

November 14, 2018 5:00 pm

Repatriation of Native American cultural items involves complex issues of religion, property law, provenance, and indigenous rights. 3D digital replication of objects is emerging as an approach that allows museums and tribes to manage their interests, which sometimes conflict, and sometimes complement both educational and ceremonial goals. Dr. Eric Hollinger, Tribal Liaison, Repatriation Office, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, describes some of the Smithsonian’s recent collaborations with tribes on 3D replication projects. Presented by the Wolf Humanities Center at Penn; cosponsored by the Penn Museum and the Price Lab for Digital Humanities.

Lecture and Book Signing: The Devil’s Diary by Robert K. Wittman

November 17, 2018 2:00 pm

A groundbreaking World War II narrative wrapped in a riveting detective story, The Devil’s Diary investigates the disappearance of a private diary penned by one of Adolf Hitler’s top aides—Alfred Rosenberg, his “chief philosopher”—and mines its long-hidden pages to deliver a fresh, eye-opening account of the Nazi rise to power and the genesis of the Holocaust.

New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Wittman, who as an FBI agent and then a private consultant specializing in recovering artifacts of historic significance, first learned of the diary in 2001, when the chief archivist for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum contacted him to say that someone was trying to sell it for upwards of a million dollars. The phone call sparked a decade-long hunt that took them on a twisting path involving a pair of octogenarian secretaries, an eccentric professor, and an opportunistic trash-picker. From the crusading Nuremberg prosecutor who smuggled the diary out of Germany to the man who finally turned it over, everyone had reasons for hiding the truth.

Drawing on Rosenberg’s entries about his role in the seizure of priceless artwork and the brutal occupation of the Soviet Union, his conversations with Hitler and his endless rivalries with Göring, Goebbels, and Himmler, The Devil’s Diary offers vital historical insight of unprecedented scope and intimacy into the innermost workings of the Nazi regime—and into the psyche of the man whose radical vision mutated into the Final Solution. Book signing to follow.

Tickets: $30; $25 for Members.

Watery Landscapes of Ancient Egypt, Their Depiction, and Why They Mattered

November 17, 2018 3:30 pm

From prehistoric times onward the Egyptians depicted watery environments, very often those of the Delta. The Delta landscape was much more enveloping than the Nile valley while lacking the relief and visibility of Upper Egypt. Its characteristics spoke to the importance of water and marsh and to the perpetual renewal implied by abundant growth. Such environments were integral to architectural forms and ritual settings and were also crucial for highly valued pastimes. Dr. John Baines, Emeritus Professor of Egyptology, University of Oxford, speaks in this lecture, presented by the American Research Center in Egypt Pennsylvania Chapter (ARCE-PA).

Admission: $10, general public; $7, Penn Museum Members and Penn faculty/staff; $5, students with ID; free for ARCE-PA members and children under 12.
