“Two jewels in a glass box,” is how the architect described The Kimmel Center.
The Kimmel Center has been home to the Philadelphia Orchestra since 2001. It is located in Center City (a few blocks from City Hall) on the section of Broad Street called “Avenue of the Arts” – along with several other art venues and the University of the Arts. In addition to the orchestra, the building is home to other local music and dance organizations, a fancy restaurant, and LOTS of art. The central plaza is open daily, and is the site of frequent free live performances and showings of contemporary art (plus free Wifi).
