Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Why not leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others?

I think it's good to open up new spaces to show the art better.

Thank you for making this museum even more beautiful! Every time I've come here I am inspired to return to my creative roots of drawing and painting. A quick 2 hour drive along the NJ Turnpike, the museum offers a welcome respite from busy Manhattan life.

I just reviewed the Gehry exhibit on the future plan for renovating the museum.One stated goal is to link the building with the residents of the City. I think that a way to do that in the current time is to invite the employees - from Allied Barton and the kitchen and food service and all roles in the museum - to bring a friend / family member to an exhibit ... tell their art story... I think that ART is all about relationships and sharing... something that no change in architecture will remedy. Start now with the people resources you have on hand and build your audience...your connections... your rich heritage in the city.

Helpful exhibit, thanks> Three comments/suggestions: remove the wall behind the Diana sculpture to open that up to view from both sides; hopefully the structural system for the glazing in the pediment will be invisible, not thick as currently shown; and the stair window is brilliant!

As a Rocky afficianado, I originally joined others in holding reservations about altering the Art Museum (no, not "Rocky") steps, but think that the Gehry plan wonderfully respects the original Trumbauer design, while reviving the old and adding thew new. Reopening the Kelly Drive entrance, and creating a new sneak-peak into the new gallery space from the east, and re-touching the east terrace will recreate something for the city to be very proud of. Best of luck making it happen.

I really like the Gehry exhibit. I think that the new gallery space will do big things for the museum and I would like to be able to see more of the Museum's collection on display and out of storage. I think that the whole Level C space is beautiful. I like the cut out in the stairs and I think it would be a shame to hesitate on that just because people would rather associate the steps with a movie than with one of the greatest art museums in the world. Good luck with the renovations. As a Philadelphian I can't wait to see this under way.

I'm thrilled with the master plan for our Museum. AS proud as I am of being a Philadelphian, the planned improvements will place our City in a higher place among the international art community. Thanks Frank.

Thank you to Uncle Frank for respecting the original architecture. A very rare designer, indeed, who places his clients ahead of our decon fever, our missing Libeskind, or all the other Facadimists who grace our faceless cities and streets. Better yet, allow me to compare his works to the emotion I get from standing in front of the large glass, a sense of wonder and excitement with a space that just feels right. I have been moved by his works ever since I saw his house addition, forks embedded in the driveway and chain link vision box, et all. An Artist really, more than an Artichoke, a craftsman using tools and not tools using computers.But please please leave the entablature figurative sculpture in front of the new glass of the frieze. Just paint their backs white so Cy will be happy.Please leave a window for my friend Marcel's Large Glass.Please crack a window open so all the souls may be released.And please try to have more fun with your works, LOL,

The most interesting thing that I enjoyed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art is sounds, which made by steps, that follows me from the wooden floors, which covers almost every spots in the museum.

The exhibits in this museum are definitely worth visiting. I can't wait for the renovation works to be completed in the next decade.
