Both the French Impressionist painters and Auguste Rodin paved a path toward modern art. Join us for an in-depth look at 19th and early 20th century painting and sculpture at the Barnes Foundation and the Rodin Museum. Through a lecture, gallery session, and a hands-on activity, explore how Impressionist artists rebelled on canvas, Rodin revolutionized sculpture, and how all of these masterpieces found their home in Philadelphia.
Educators only. $32; Barnes and PMA members $25. Register through PMA: philamuseum.org/education or 215.235.7469.
