Musée Rodin was revisiting the Rodin’s Cathedral in France, which was at the time, a book written by Rodin in 1914, and it sparked Musée to retransform and project an exhibition showcasing a whole new array of works. In the exhibition, Rodin’s works are presented in a dialogue form with sculptures and drawings and other rarely displayed works.

Kiefer Rodin is open until March 12, 2018, so take advantage of your STAMP pass and head to the Barnes Foundation before it’s too late! Enjoy your time at the exhibition and explore the rest of the museum.
