A surreal experience

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. There are also spaces in the galleries, with abstract furniture put together to portray a piece of art. PHOTOS BY MARIA POUCHNIKOVA
