Originally located in Merion, the Barnes Foundation moved to Philadelphia in 2012. Dr. Albert C. Barnes founded the art gallery. Through its offerings, it seeks to promote education and transform lives through the advancement of art. With its classes, galleries, and lectures, the foundation is a prime destination for art lovers around Philadelphia.

The French artist Suzanne Valadon will have her work on exhibition at the gallery until January 9, 2022. Come and witness her groundbreaking paintings that tackle provocative themes about women and identity.
