Philadelphia, PA- The Barnes Foundation’s new Art Education Center will house the institution’s world-renowned art collection in galleries that will replicate the scale, proportion and configuration of the existing galleries. In addition, the center will provide a substantial increase in space for art education programs in the form of classrooms, seminar rooms and an auditorium. The new building will also include facilities for conservation, research and administration; a gallery for special exhibitions; a retail shop and restaurant; and areas for special events and visitor services.
