A grand opening celebration for Penn Medicine University City took place last Friday to shine a spotlight on the latest advances in patient experience and engagement in the new West Philadelphia outpatient building, which is home to more than a dozen clinical specialties. It showcased the 13-story facility on the northeast corner of 38th and Market Streets.

Medicine's Past & Future
The first medical school in the country—Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine­— turns 250 this year and it kicked off the celebration on College Green last Monday. Ray Perelman—the benefactor who three years ago, with his late wife, Ruth, gave the largest naming gift to a medical school in the United States—was on hand for the festivities which included cakes, cupcakes and the Penn Band.

Penn Humanities Forum on Color 2014–2015
Name any color (or color combination), and the associations proliferate: we not only see in color, we speak, hear and narrate with it. The history of colors is one of visual cognition and artistic experimentation, to be sure, but it is also one of global trade and often unsavory quests for new pigments.

New Penn Museum Exhibitions Explore Aspects of Color
The Penn Museum, in association with the 2014–2015 Penn Humanities Forum on Color, offers two very different small exhibitions that explore aspects of color—one looking at the role played by colored stone and marble in material culture throughout the ages, the other exploring the role of color through the lens of art, drawing and photography in the fields of archaeology and anthropology. The Year of Color exhibitions are now on view.
