If you’re in Philadelphia for the Terracotta Warriors exhibition at the Franklin Institute, carve out time to head across Benjamin Franklin Parkway to the Barnes Foundation for an exhibition marking the centennial of Auguste Rodin’s death on November 17. Kiefer Rodin opens on that day and will be on view through March 12, 2018. The exhibition, comprising more than 100 works, includes watercolors, drawings and sculptures by Rodin—including rarely displayed plasters—and works created specifically for the exhibition by contemporary artist Anselm Kiefer in response to the works of Rodin.

Philadelphia’s Rodin Museum, also on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, will likewise mark Rodin’s centennial with special exhibitions and programs. barnesfoundation.org, rodinmuseum.org
