Expedition 1601B: A Trip to the Barnes Has Concluded
On Saturday, 24 September 2016, trip-goers started their morning with coffee and a danish from Light's Bakery before boarding the bus at 7:45am. The four-hour drive to the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was filled with lively discussion until a light lunch from Turtle Leaf Cafe was served during a morning rest-stop.
Upon our arrival and check-in Barnes Foundation staff members presented our group with a 30-minute overview of the collection, its founder and the rich history of the Barnes Foundation. Travelers had the remainder of the afternoon at their leisure to explore the Foundation's award-winning new building, its treasures and its environs.
