Tiles in Philadelphia
On a recent trip to Pennsylvania to attend the Doylestown Tile Festival, Larry Faucher had the chance to take in the Philadelphia Art Museum. While awed by their extensive collection from ancient to modern, the inveterate tile collector was pleasantly surprised to see many tiles on display. The tiles were treated as a true art form, equal in skill, creativity and inspiration as any other medium. Though not as plentiful as other types of art, the tiles were nicely placed in context with other art of the period.
