artblog goes to the new Barnes and loves it – an image slide show

We visited the Barnes Foundation at its new digs on the Parkway last Wednesday, May 16, the day of the press preview. We love the new building, and the collection looks fantastic with new state of the art lighting. The special exhibition gallery holds promise of offering additional art exhibits (including contemporary art) that expand upon Barnes’ idea of collecting radical art and educating the public about it. Below is our slide show of pictures. Many more at our flickr sets: Roberta’s flickr and Libby’s flickr. ¬†Go see the Barnes — it’s fantastic! And see our slide show when you click “more.”
