2021 Barnes Art Ball

Nightlife / Social

Friday, October 15

#BarnesArtBall

We’re celebrating at the Barnes for the first time since 2019!

About the Art Ball

Our annual fundraiser, the Barnes Art Ball, takes place on-site, Friday, October 15, at 7pm.

Join fellow artists, collectors, philanthropists, community partners, thought leaders, and connectors as we reconvene in person for a night of diverse and dynamic creative experiences.

Our team is committed to staging a spectacular celebration while ensuring safe ways to support and attend. Artistic encounters will surprise and delight throughout our building, gardens, and expansive West Terrace. In the Roberts Gallery, Suzanne Valadon: Model, Painter, Rebel will set the tone for a dazzling evening!

For those who prefer a more intimate experience—celebrate at the Artful Champagne Brunch on Saturday, October 16, at 9am, and support the Barnes in a more structured setting with limited attendance. (Call 215.278.7110 to purchase Artful Champagne Brunch tickets.)

BEST OF ALL? IT’S FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Art, community, entertainment, and philanthropy. The Barnes Art Ball raises critical funds that ensure the future of the Foundation’s educational mission, exhibition program, and wide array of community, artistic, and scholarly projects.

Tickets on Sale Now. Call 215.278.7110.
