The Barnes is collaborating with Mural Arts Philadelphia to creatively reuse our former guest services center. The small structure, uniquely situated at the edge of our site, is an ideal place for art activations that function as a critical bridge to communities near us.
Let’s Connect: Philly’s Artists Take on the Barnes
Over the next year, five Philadelphia artists will hold residencies at the Mural Arts Studio at the Barnes. These artists were selected by the public and a team of curators as part of Let’s Connect, a project that challenged the city’s artists to create a work of their own in response to a single work of art in the Barnes collection. You can drop by to learn about the artists and their work during open studio hours.
