Modero, an Indonesian traditional dance group based in South Philadelphia, will lead us in an international experience of Determined To Be: The Sculpture of John Rhoden. Sinta Penyami Storms and Detty Permanasari, Modero's master artists, will help us connect to the culture and history of Indonesia, where John Rhoden spent two formative years of his artistic career. All ages are invited to experience an immersive hour enjoying Indonesian culture, history, and traditional dance amidst the magnificent sculptures of John Rhoden. 

Museum admission is included in the registration. Seats are limited.    

Modero started as a community dance group, then with a passion of bringing the community together, Modero’s focus is now traditional dance, food and quality events. Modero strives to be as inclusive as we can to support our Indonesian community in South Philly.
