Traveling back in time: The Philadelphia Museum of Art features a Surrealists Exhibit through March. More than 70 works of art, poetry, and sound clips adorn the exhibit’s walls, designed to give people a sensation of going back in time to 1924, when the Surrealist movement began in Paris. The exhibit is designed to look through the history of the movement like a timeline, starting with its early influences in the 1930s, and following it through the end of World War II.
