Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO is featured on the January episode of WHYY’s Friday Arts TV program.

The episode features our Executive Director, Penny Balkin Bach, and several of the “voices” from the audio program, including John B. Kelly III on the sculpture of John B. Kelly, Michael Zuckerman on the Ellen Phillips Samuel Memorial, and Robert Linck on the Swann Memorial Fountain.

“Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO is free to the public and we hope through this audio program that it will help people look more closely at all of Philadelphia’s treasures, our architecture, our landscape,” says Fairmount Park Art Association’s (now the Association for Public Art) Executive Director, Penny Balkin Bach.

“You really never know who you’re going to hear, what they’re going to tell you, how it’s going to be presented. And in this sense it really differs very much from other kind of audio tours.”

Watch the segment online or tune into WHYY during the month of January (schedule here) to watch the complete episode.
