To celebrate Shipwreck! Winslow Homer and “The Life Line,” the Philadelphia Museum of Art offers free admission to first responders and their families during the opening week of the exhibition. Focusing on one of Homer’s greatest works, Shipwreck! explores the related themes of the exhilaration of ocean travel and disaster on the high seas and romantic rescue in the 19th century, setting these in the context of the rich tradition of marine painting.
