PAFA's latest acquisitions — 111 in all — also include 8 sculptures by 20th century artist John Rhoden, 17 works on paper by Helen Frankenthaler, the work "Daddy Likee?" by contemporary Philadelphia artist Kukili Velarde, and 35 prints by the Philadelphia-based Brandywine Workshop.
Archaeological testing will begin in about five weeks on the Columbus Blvd. site of the West Shipyard, a registered Philadelphia landmark. The developer is moving carefully, keeping the public informed of developing plans.
