The Barnes Foundation’s Philadelphia campus is an elegant structure that features a stunning glass canopy, which filters natural light into the galleries by day, and softly illuminates the building at night. With over 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space to choose from, the Philadelphia campus offers a variety of venues to suit your entertaining needs.
The luminescent Annenberg Court is a living room on a grand scale, flowing out onto a terrace to create a beautiful indoor-outdoor space with a refined back-porch atmosphere. The Court is covered by a cantilevered glass lightbox that extends over the terrace, letting in natural light by day and radiating dramatic illusion by night. In the evening, a lusterware-tiled fireplace illuminates the terrace, framed by the seasonal beauty of the surrounding Parkway landscape, making The Barnes the perfect Philadelphia wedding venue day or night.
A fantastic celebration or intimate gathering is made complete with delicious, flavorful food. STARR Events, the Barnes Foundation’s exclusive caterer, creates custom menus for each event, featuring innovative, art-inspired cuisine. Made with locally-sourced ingredients, each dish is crafted to delight guests with bold and unexpected details.
