The birthplace of America is rich in artistic grandeur.  Come experience Philadelphia's “Museum Mile” along the city's famed Benjamin Franklin Parkway.  In this course we will explore the acclaimed Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rodin Museum, Franklin Institute, and the recent, controversial relocation of the Barnes Foundation.  If you enjoy the macabre, you'll get that and more as we also venture into the nearby Mütter Museum.
