The Rodin Museum Debuts A Brand-New Installation To Celebrate The Auguste Rodin Centenary

Discover notable sculptures like The Kiss, The Thinker and more...

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of August Rodin’s death, and museums around the world are honoring the centenary with special exhibitions and educational activities.

Philadelphia’s own Rodin Museum celebrates the life and legacy of Auguste Rodin with a brand-new installation in its recently reopened museum.

The installation centers around the theme of passionate embrace and features marbles, bronzes, terracottas and plasters created by Rodin over a 30-year period.

The museum galleries are filled with some of Rodin’s most notable sculptures, including The Minotaur, Eternal Springtime and Youth Triumphant. Each sculpture was created to evoke a strong emotional connection with the audience.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is The Kiss, a large marble structure that depicts adulterous lovers.
