The Barnes Foundation has moved to its new home on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway (the avenue of the arts for Philadelphia). Nestled along side the great museums of Philadelphia, the Barnes offers educational opportunities for all ages from early childhood art classes and pj collection tours, to docent led collection tours, arboretum classes, fine art classes and out reach classes in the Philadelphia School District. The Barnes additionally offers first Friday activities with lectures and music.
The new opportunities to serve the community have created rapidly changing demands for the Barnes diverse staff and opportunities for creative programing. There is an electric charged atmosphere of all things possible which requires much dedication from support staff.
