The Alumni Association fosters a sense of community and tradition among former Barnes students who are connected by the educational experience envisioned by Albert and Laura Barnes. Education is the heart of the Barnes mission, and the participation and journey of its students is critical to the Foundation’s history and future. The Alumni Association offers opportunities for students to further their knowledge and passion for the aesthetic educational experience and to stay connected, volunteer, and support the Foundation.
