About the Event
Get ready for a grand fall fête as this edition of #BarnesYP toasts to the Barnes Foundation’s fifth anniversary on the Parkway. Music, gastro bites, and sips await all you industry leaders and art lovers. To get your cinq-chic look on fleek, we've teamed up with Philadelphia style icon Boyds to curate contemporary party ensembles inspired by five timeless pieces in the Barnes collection. From a late-night art fix in the galleries to postmodern beats in the court, Cinq Chic is an art- and style-packed ode to you + five incredible years of #BarnesYP energizing the arts. Here's to five hundred more.
