November and December: Making Music Events at the Barnes

December is coming fast and we’ll soon be heading into the winter season and making music, which is the next month’s December family programs theme at the Barnes  “inspired by harmonious works in the collection” (The Barnes Foundation). There are multiple events going on at the Barnes in November and December, including the regular ArtSee activities I’ve blogged about before. Here are the two special events I’m most excited about:


The Cynthia Gale Designer Trunk Show- November 22nd

Cynthia Gale is the artist and designer behind the Barnes Metalwork Jewelry collection.  This exceptional artist was selected by the Silver Institute as a Designer of Distinction and has traveled widely making exquisite jewelry collections for museums based on their themes. At the Barnes on the 22nd she will be there is person talking to guest about where she draws her inspiration and her creative process. This event is for all, and especially if you are interested in design. It is from 3 pm-8 pm and you can quickly drop in to check it out after school.

This is an amazing event to go to for all students and it sounds like it will be so entertaining. Plus you can check out the Beautiful collections while your there. I know I can’t wait to check out the event and see all the things they have happening.
