Opening Weekend, May 26–28, 2012
Come spend the weekend with us. We plan to celebrate the opening of the Barnes Foundation’s Philadelphia campus with 56 consecutive hours of free access and activities. Inspiring the weekend’s films, foods, and performances are the mix of cultures represented in the Barnes’s collection and the 1920s, the heady decade when the Foundation began. Some of Philadelphia’s finest cultural and performing arts organizations will be there—Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra, Relâche, Peter Tang’s Chinese Music Ensemble, and AfroTaino Productions, among them. Activities are designed for participants of all ages, with events that are particularly family friendly clustered in the hours between 11 am and 4 pm each day.
Please note that this schedule is subject to change and will be updated regularly, so check back for additions to it. Space for some activities is limited, with admission on a first come, first served basis. Advance reservations are recommended to ensure your preferred date and time of arrival.
