COMMERCIAL: KIMMEL CENTER: The Campus For Artistic Excellence
The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia houses Verizon Hall, Perlman Theater and the SEI Innovation Studio, as well as Jose Garces’ Restaurant and Bar Volver, Hamilton Gardens and multiple open air spaces ideal for conventions, weddings and business meetings. In addition it manages the Academy of Music and Merriam Theater. These venues are home to The Philadelphia Orchestra, Opera Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ballet, Philadanco, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Philly Pops, American Theater Arts for Youth, Curtis Institute and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society. The Kimmel Center also produces Broadway Philadelphia, Kimmel Center Presents and the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts. If your measuring by seat count, it is the second largest performance arts center in the country.
Beginning in 2014 I was given the honor of photographing their 2014/15 campaign - helping them to define their brand, tying their entire campus together by looking at all of the aspects of their productions and services and helping them to visually develop their messaging. As you will see, it was great fun.
