At Fashion District in East Market, the world premiere of Banksy Was Here has made its debut.

The exhibit features background on - and works by - the controversial and mysterious artist who calls himself Banksy.

There are also interactive elements amidst the displays, all providing a glimpse inside the mind of the anonymous street artist.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art has several exhibits right now, including the highly-anticipated 'Matisse in the 1930s'.

This will be the only U.S. showing of the exhibition.

At PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts), the exhibition 'Making American Artists' displays works from their own collection, made from 1776 to 1976.

The Philadelphia Orchestra features the North American premiere of 'Echoes of Ancient Tang Poems', in celebration of the Lunar New Year.

The concert will be performed for one night only, before its second and final performance in New York.
