XPN Morning Show host Michaela Majoun will present 30 Days of Philly Arts, a daily on-air and online guide to essential area arts events to see, hear and do during September. Local artists and arts producers will also appear in on-air/online features.
Michaela says, "This is a way to bring attention to a lot more of the local arts organizations and artists than I could with the Friday Morning Arts Crawl feature and spring and fall arts previews that I've been doing for years. I want to incorporate artist profiles into the mix to round out our glimpse of the amazing arts scene in Philadelphia and our entire area."
30 Days of Arts and Culture is just one of the many ways in which WXPN recognizes, supports and promotes music and other arts events taking place throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
Founded in 1805, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts is the oldest art museum and art school in the country and has been housed at its present location in a Frank Furness/George Hewitt designed building since 1876. The building is a National Historic Landmark and its chronologically and thematically installed collection explores American art from the 1760s through today.
