PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The opening of a new exhibit of the works of Marc Chagall marks the first major project of the upcoming Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (“PIFA”).

The exhibit, “Paris Through the Window: Marc Chagall and His Circle,” is a pre-launch of the first ever Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, and comprises more than 70 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from Chagall, whom many consider one of the fathers of modern art, and those around him.  It opens Tuesday at the Pererlman Building of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

“We’re inspired by what happened in the city of Paris, 1910 to 1920, when artists from around the world flocked there to push the boundaries of art,” says PIFA executive director Ed Cambron (above).  “Artists were working together in new and innovative ways.”

Dance, theatre, performing arts, circus arts, food, fashion, and more will cover Philadelphia for 25 days of the festival, beginning April 7th.  For more information, go to pifa.org.
