With Therese Dolan and Lynn Miller
Event  in partnership with the Athenaeum of Philadelphia



Just over a century ago, the creation of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway by two French architects provided a stunning boulevard for Philadelphia that was inspired by the Champs-Elysées. That gave a major piece of this city something of the look of Paris, allowing museums and green space to grow there that would hold some of the greatest examples of French and French-inspired art in the world.

Lynn Miller and Therese Dolan, the authors of Salut! France Meets Philadelphia, will explore this subject in a program co-sponsored by the Athenaeum of Philadelphia and the Alliance Française de Philadelphie.

Lynn Miller is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Temple University. He is the author of, among other works, Global Order: Values and Power in International Politics and Crossing the Line (a novel), Postcards from Delphi (a memoir), and the co-author (with James McClelland) of City in a Park: A History of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park System.

Therese Dolan is Professor Emerita of Art History at Temple University's Tyler School of Art and Architecture. She is the author of Manet, Wagner, and the Musical Culture of Their Time and Inventing Reality: The Paintings of John Moore, and the editor of Perspectives on Manet.
