Now some of them worry what will become of the empty Barnes facility, most hope it will remain as a teaching facility, or worse it become dorms for St. Joe's College?

Can This Documentary Save The Barnes? A Sneak Peak. The countdown begins: On Feb. 26, The Art of the Steal -- Don Argott's documentary about the struggle for the control of the Barnes Foundation -- opens in theaters (two days after it can be seen on demand) in New York and Philadelphia.
Attorney's Justin Wineburgh and Allison Binder. Justin is spending the remaing chilly winter days in Florida, but looks forward to returning to Philly in a few weeks. So jealous. Allison runs her practice in Beverly Hill, Ca and has her hands in many of the projects that end up on the big screen, so jealous. She reads PhillyChitChat to keep up to date with the going ons in our fair town, thanks:)
