The Barnes Foundation opens to the public on May 19th, 2012, the already-compelling cultural district along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia will become the focus of the art world.

Free Public tickets are available May 26-28th. Tickets can be booked online by the day, in half-hour time slots HERE.

The New Barnes Foundation Campus will house the late Albert Barnes’ treasured art holdings. Architects have designed a highly anticipated building that duplicates Barnes’ original gallery layout, while adding classrooms and an interior garden space. The new building allows the world’s largest collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings—including 181 Renoirs, 69 Cezannes, 59 Matisses, 46 Picassos and 7 Van Goghs—and African sculpture to be viewed as intended.

The gallery space is part of a 93,000-square-foot building, which also includes a changing exhibition gallery, conservation lab, auditorium, library, cafe and gift shop. 20th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway, (215) 640-0171, barnesfoundation.org
