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?

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.

While personal memories make me sad to hear the Chagal backdrop will be moved, the possibilities of it being hung in a larger open space are exciting. Originally designed as a dance backdrop, it was always intended to support movement and shapes in front of it. I have always felt that when I walk up the stairs in front of where it hangs now, I am participating in being part of that movement...I am helping to bring it alive. I hope this is considered when it's new home is chosen.

Over twenty years ago I heard Bob Scott, who was President of the Museum at the time, say that the "Museum is in the business of opening people's minds." I am thrilled that the Museum continues to embrace this mission and that the reconfiguring of space will offer more wonderful opportunities for more people to open their mind and see the extraordinary beauty in our world.

Came just for this exhibition. Very thankful that I was able to come to see this. It's very informative about the working process of architecture, simplified for people like me : )

I'm excited by the idea of bringing new light and space into what has often felt like a dark closed space. I think a more open and inviting space will enhance the impact on the community of this magnificent architectural structure and its collection.

We like Frank Gehry's New York Downtown apartment building. Ambivalent about Philadelphia Museum of Art, since it's our first visit to Philly.

After viewing many of the concepts I am excited for the museum.

Many patrons have stated a concern regarding changing the grand stairway at the East Entrance. The reasons for their concern look to be largely sentimental, and rightly so. My concern however is rooted firmly in design aesthetic. The proposed alteration (as modeled) undermines the classical perspective by breaking the horizon.

In the traditional sense, the stone stairs not only form a rock solid plateau on which to plant columns, they serve to impress monumental importance to the site. I know not all museums are monuments. Do you believe the Philadelphia Museum of Art be afforded such distinction? I do. Maintaining the century-old stone stairs as originally intended is so very important.
