The mission of the Barnes is to promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts and horticulture.
The Barnes strives to mirror the diversity of the Philadelphia regional population in its exhibitions, education offerings, public programs, and audiences. We actively seek to build a diverse Board, staff, and stakeholder community, recognizing that an ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion is integral to the Barnes’s excellence and success.
On the first Sunday of every month, the Barnes partners with PECO to offer a free day of family fun. Along with art making, educational activities, and featured performances, the event includes complimentary access to the Barnes collection and “William Edmondson: A Monumental Vision”.
Free; capacity is limited, and registration is required.
