A memorial service honoring Inquirer art critic Edward J. Sozanski will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 31, at the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, 2125 Chestnut St.

Mr. Sozanski, who died April 14 at age 77, wrote about art in Philadelphia and the region for more than 30 years.

"Ed's contribution to the cultural life of this city was enormous," William Valerio, director and chief executive of the Woodmere Art Museum said in the obituary. "[He] made Philadelphia a good place for artists to live, because people knew art was being taken seriously here."
