This Friday night, The Barnes Foundation celebrates Black Music Month with its After Work Jam event.
The Barnes’ after-hours events are an excellent way to access the collection, which is usually only available to visit with a reserved, timed ticket.
This week, take in the incredible fine-art collection, as well as libations, live music and many other festive happenings.
Indoors, enjoy music from Najwa Parkins and the After Hour Trio and one, a local jazz group from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Outdoors, DJ JaySki spins the hottest beats from 7 to 10 p.m.
From 6:30 to 8 p.m., iconic radio host and Philadelphia broadcaster E. Steven Collins hosts a panel discussion on Black Music Month.
In addition to music, drinks and discussions, attendees are invited to explore the Barnes’ ever-impressive collection during the event.
In celebratory summer fashion, guests are encouraged to sport their finest white apparel for the evening event.
