Philagrafika, an international festival in Philadelphia showcasing the role of printmaking in contemporary art, aims to shatter those attitudes. On this week's <i>News and Views</i>, Susan Lewis explores Philagrafika 2010, which includes over 300 artists and 80 Philadelphia-area venues. The festival runs until April 11, 2010.</p> Mon, 08 Feb 2010 17:51:13 +0000 Susan Lewis 3312 at http://wrti.org Philagrafika: Philadelphia's International Festival Celebrating Print in Contemporary Art Let's Pretend We're Married--Philagrafika 2010--Wicked Phila & the Story of Occultist George Lippard http://wrti.org/post/lets-pretend-were-married-philagrafika-2010-wicked-phila-story-occultist-george-lippard <p>Jim Cotter speaks with Jennifer Childs and Tony Braithwaite. <i>Let's Pretend We're Married</i>, the hit show they created for 1812 Productions, returns to the Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia.
