Philadelphia, PA (July 30, 2012)—In celebration of the opening of the Barnes Foundation on the Parkway and the shared artistic vision between the Barnes and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum is offering a special value to visitors to the Barnes Foundation. Through September 3, Barnes visitors will enjoy $5 off special exhibition tickets to Gauguin, Cézanne, Matisse: Visions of Arcadia (June 20–September 3, 2012). This exhibition explores the theme of earthly paradise through European painting and sculpture and offers a rich dialogue with many works in the Barnes Foundation, most notably Henri Matisse’s Le Bonheur de vivre and Paul Cézanne’s Bathers at Rest.
“Visions of Arcadia is a lush, vibrant show and the galleries of the Philadelphia Museum of Art are the ideal city escape from the summer heat,” said Timothy Rub, The George D. Widener Director and Chief Executive Officer. “This promotion is a wonderful opportunity for residents and out of town guests to enjoy everything the Parkway has to offer.”
Visitors must show a valid Barnes ticket stub at time of purchase. Special exhibition tickets to Visions of Arcadia include admission to the Main Building, the Perelman Building and the newly renovated Rodin Museum. Discount applies to walk-up, adult special exhibition ticket purchases only. Discount expires September 3, 2012. Subject to availability. Offer cannot be combined with other discounts.
