Young Professionals Night: Mementos from Paris

Join over 800 of Philadelphia's young art lovers and industry leaders who come together for Young Professionals night at the city's newest cultural hotspot. On October 24, escape to a Paris-inspired fall fête: a one-night rendezvous of art, style, music, and scene.

Art. This month's theme "Mementos from Paris" not only celebrates our world-renowned collection of French post-impressionist masterpieces, it also sets the stage for our upcoming exhibition on William Glackens, a Philadelphia artist who guided Dr. Barnes towards modern French painting and inspired his collection. Tickets include collection admission (galleries close at 9 pm).

Style. YP tradition calls for dressing the part. Think effortless chic emblematic of Parisian style.

Music. Dance to the grande dame of progressive house, DJ Kristin Garofalo, or chill at the terrace with the Philly Hot Club's  sounds of Parisian streets.

Scene. Stroll through our terrace-turned-French bistro, and enjoy cocktails and light fare (available for purchase):
Tarte Paysanne. Tomato tart, creme fraiche, field greens, smoked tomato vinaigrette
Confit de Canard en Croute. Duck confit in puff pastry, Herb d’Provence pistou
