Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts

PIFA The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA), inspired by the Kimmel Center, launches the citys art and cultural scene onto the world stage with a three-week festival offering performances, exhibits and events for loyal fans and casual attendees. Offerings include newly commissioned works, classical performances and exhibits, surprising partnerships featuring local and international artists, and exciting explorations of traditional, non-traditional, new and emerging art forms. PIFA 2011, an homage to the artistic energy of Paris 1910-1920, celebrates works from that era and new creations inspired by the brashly innovative spirit of the period.Art is made up of moments. Moments of inspiration. Power. Emotion. Grace. Passion. These moments collided in Paris in 1911 and changed the path of art and conventional creativity. There will be another spectacular convergence exactly 100 years later.
