Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Barnes Foundation

Barnes Foundation

Opened in 2012 after relocating from suburban Philadelphia, the Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway maintains the distinct display style of Dr. Albert Barnes. However, sophisticated filtering of natural light throughout the building and galleries gives the artworks a stunning, almost new look, while also reducing the building’s electrical usage.
