Airport art: A new photo gallery of Philly muscians

Did I ever say I like what PHL administrators do with artwork, adorning many walls that might otherwise be lined with advertising? I can't count the number of times exhibitions have slowed me down as I trod down some of the long corridors.Today Mayor Nutter and other dignataries were on hand to unveil 44 black-and-white photographs of Philadelphia music legends who have stars on the Walk of Fame, on South Broad Street between Walnut and Pine. (See Inquirer story here.) The exhibition, sponsored by the city and Sunoco Welcome America, is in Terminal A-East through mid-September.
