About the Event
Enjoy an evening of art, live music, film, cocktails, and light fare at our monthly First Friday mixer. Tonight’s event features Yolanda Wisher & The Afroeaters, a dynamic band fronted by the 2016 poet laureate of Philadelphia. Their debut album, Doublehanded Suite, is a blend of jazz, blues, and Wisher’s spoken word soundscapes exploring works by Black writers that have been lost or misunderstood.
Live music sets:
6:30 and 7:45pm
First Friday at the Barnes includes access to the collection galleries and Modigliani Up Close.
Cocktails and light fare are available for purchase. Seating is limited.
