About Us

The Barnes Foundation is a nonprofit educational institution that shares its art collection with the public, organizes special exhibitions, and presents programming that fosters new ways of thinking about human creativity. Home to one of the world’s finest collections of impressionist, post-impressionist, and early modern paintings, the Barnes integrates art from across cultures and time periods to reveal the universal impulse to create, as well as the personal expression of each artist.

Services Offered

The Barnes Foundation offers many opportunities for families, teachers, students to experience the art collection. Students in the School District of Philadelphia can participate in our grant-funded field trip programs. These programs include free busing and admission to the Barnes Foundation as well as outreach lessons at the school for certain grade levels.
