Note: Not for the faint of heart. Participants will engage in a brisk, 45-minute workout. Exercise attire required.
Gain a fresh perspective on our colletion through knee bends with suits of armor and jumping jacks with Picasso. Jog along with Monica Bill Barnes and her longtime dancing partner Anna Bass as they travel through the Museum, performing choreographed exercises in the galleries. A contemplative narration by author and visual artist Maira Kaiman (who also selected the art along the tour) mixes with high-energy music ranging from disco to Motown. The infectious soundtrack and participatory performances transform the traditional museum tour and help you create a new relationship with galleries and art. The Museum Workout is presented in partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art , with support for this production from The Daniel W. Dietrich II Fund for Contemporary Art.
Sessions occur at 8:00am, 9:00am, 5:30pm, 6:30pm
