Strength and Splendor: Wrought Iron from the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen

Opening party for Strength and Splendor: Wrought Iron from the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen and Ellen Harvey: Metal Painting

It's ironwork's time to shine! Celebrate the public opening of two new exhibitions inspired by the 887 pieces of European and American ironwork in the Barnes collection.

Strength and Splendor spotlights the world’s most important collection of wrought iron objects, and Metal Painting is a large-scale contemporary commission of hundreds of “portraits” of ironwork objects at the Barnes.

Enjoy a live performance by award-winning saxophone quartet Project Fusion. Splash, the magazine of the Chicago Sun-Times, calls this incredible quartet “a joy to watch—sparkling as much as the instruments in their hands.”

Be first to see the two shows! Don't miss an unforgettable evening of art, cocktails and live music.
