Independence Seaport Museum, 211 S. Columbus Blvd. Philadelphia, PA
Complementing the Museum’s indoor River Alive! exhibit, FLOW uses art to encourage viewers to step outside and engage with the river. Ten artworks by fourteen artists from the U.S. and Québec, Canada, create a dazzling flotilla of unique floating art installations at the Penn’s Landing Boat Basin, turning the harbor into an outdoor art museum.
FLOW is about water, the history of the Delaware River, and the interconnectedness of nature and humanity. It is an exhibition showcasing the wide-ranging ways in which artists respond to this dynamic relationship.

Group Exhibition, Juried by Bill Timmins
July 9th - September 19th
July 9th, 6pm - 8pm
Everyday, 8am - 10pm
Throughout the month of July, Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia will present Shimmering Synths: The Film Music of Tangerine Dream. For over five decades the German electronic music group has created dreamy, minimalist soundscapes and iconic film scores. To a greater extent, the film score embodies the harmonious relationship between music and visual art forms. The interaction between the two has become an integral part of art theory and history, especially since the 20th century. Even when visual art and music do not overtly influence one another, they often share abstract qualities or similar external influences, such as cultural innovation, political movements, or technological developments.
Composition in Concert will accompany Lightbox’s programming as an exhibition showcasing visual artwork informed by or in conversation with music.
International House Philadelphia is located at 3701 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19104
