Barnes Museum Visit

Barnes TourOn Saturday, September 13 a group of 11 FBWE Villagers took a day trip to Philadelphia to view The Barnes Collection in its new inner-city location. The trip was operated by Encore, Inc., a Foggy Bottom tour company owned by Foggy Bottom resident Marilyn Rubin, who accompanied the group.

If your interest includes Renoir, Cezanne and Matisse, The Barnes is the place to go. The holdings of these artists are extensive and complimented by works of Old Masters, premier American artists and decorative objects selected by Dr. Barnes. The visit to the Collection was preceded by lunch at the historic City Tavern, which dates back to 1773 and offers authentic 18th-Century cuisine. A good time was had by all!
