Changes afoot for iconic steps at Philadelphia Museum of Art

By Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – The Philadelphia Museum of Art, on the verge of unveiling details of a major expansion, is considering changes to the steps made famous in the 1976 “Rocky” movie, the museum director said on Wednesday. The plans, which are not final, call for a 24-foot window in the center of the staircase at the neoclassical building, said Timothy Rub, the museum’s director and chief executive officer. The window would connect to underground galleries to be designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. From inside, visitors would get a view of the Philadelphia skyline.
