On Friday, January 3, celebrate the 122nd birthday of Dr. Albert Barnes with fabulous affair at his namesake museum on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
To kick off the inaugural First Friday party of 2014, The Barnes Foundation invites revelers and art aficionados alike out for a night celebrating Dr. Barnes’ birthday, his love of music and the incredible collections of fine art housed at the Barnes.
From 6 to 9 p.m., crowds are invited in to the museum after regular museum hours to see the collection, sip cocktails, take in inspirational music and a rare reading from the archives, and hear a short talk about music’s role in the Barnes’ mission.
