Philadelphia Delivers A Kick In The Arts

16 05 2012

New location for one of the world’s leading collections of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings

With the much anticipated re-opening of the famous Barnes Foundation, a 93,000-square-foot, two story garden/gallery housing Dr. Albert C. Barnes’s legendary art collection, the City of Brotherly Love kicks up their cultural offering a gigantic notch.

It’s getting so you can’t swing a Van Gogh (see one below from the Barnes Foundation) around the Benjamin Franklin Parkway without hitting a major art establishment, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum and the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul and much more.
