Are you a culture vulture with some serious cash flow problems? Lucky for you, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is showing some love starting today with Pay-What-You-Wish Wednesday Nights (until 8:45 p.m.).

Each Wednesday, the museum will be open later than usual for folks who wish to pay whatever they can to see the sprawling collections, with a few new events, like “triple play,” in which visitors are invited to share their thoughts on three unique works. The museum will also be hosting mini film festivals featuring indie and international flicks, as well as art films and old favorites. And regional artists (paging Zoe Strauss) will even offer in-gallery experiences and special performances pieces.

And once every month, the museum will also offer games inspired by the collections and pop-up programs, like sketching and storytelling.

Tonight, DJ Ravi spins love songs in the Great Stair Hall (5 – 8 p.m.).

Prefer to go it alone? Meditate among Cy Twombly’s “Fifty Days at Illiam.” You’ll thank us for it.
