Program #9068 | December 6-9, 2013
During the furious snow storm, our group leader Fred spent a 1/2 hour in the blizzard flagging down taxis for us to take. Eventually, we made it to the Barnes Foundation.What a remarkable place! Originally, it was built outside of Philadelphia by a rich eccentric named Dr. Arthur Barnes. Living at the beginning of the 20th century, he became an avid art collector, but rather than displaying his works by artist or time period, as most museums do, he created ensembles based on the principles of color, form, line, and light.
