Event Description: Hi All Fans of Museums,
Heres an exhibit that I thought was interesting going on at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibit is called "Fantastic and Functional Animals in Indian Art". It is described as "Animals?from ants to owls, cranes to crocodiles?populate India's art. Rather than merely being part of the landscape, however, they almost always play specific roles whether as characters in a story, symbols, or poetic metaphors.
Fantastic and Functional Animals in Indian Art draws from the Museum's rich collection of "miniature" paintings to explore the many meanings of India's scaly, feathery, and furry inhabitants, both natural and supernatural.

We can meet at the back porch (I guess thats what you would call it) of the Art Museum near the statue.
Hope to see you there,
