Memorial Weekend Madness

May 27 The Barnes Foundation
Yes, I was one of those insane people who attended the Barnes Foundation's 72 hour admission for Memorial Day weekend. My admission was for 5:30AM Sunday morning, and it was the perfect time to go. There were more people at the museum than I anticipated, but I still got to experience and enjoy all of the works. Disregarding the financial value of the collection, Dr. Barnes had a really great eye and selected some amazing pieces of paintings, sculptures and furniture that are composed in such a way that each room is a different experience. some rooms have obvious themes as evidenced by the subject matter, but other rooms just evoke a feeling, which is just as compelling. I highly recommend that you check out this wonderful institution.
