Sarah McLaughlin recently moved to Philadelphia from Durham, North Carolina, where she has been pursuing a doctorate in English literature from Duke University for the past four years. An arts and culture enthusiast, Sarah is thrilled to have an opportunity to explore Philadelphia’s rich historic enclaves as well as the city’s phenomenal collection of public art. While at Duke, Sarah studied the intersections between the arts and sciences, focusing specifically on how artists have historically worked to express humanity’s relationship to the natural world. As she reports on her ventures through the city, Sarah hopes to offer an environmental perspective on the city’s many cultural, artistic and charitable events. If you have a Philadelphia charity or cultural event, restaurant, boutique, spa, or salon you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Sarah at email@example.com.
