philly: the barnes collection

We didn't make reservations early enough last time to visit the Barnes Collection, so I knew that was something I definitely wanted to do this time around. A coworker recommend I watch this documentary about the collection, which left me with really mixed feelings - I absolutely believe that a persons will and wishes should be respected, but I am also really grateful that I was able to view these works of art....however you feel, both the story and the collection* are worth seeing.
*no photos of the collection were allowed, but I found the building really lovely.

We watched that same documentary before visiting, and it made me really uneasy, too! But then once we saw how beautifully the new museum has preserved the collection, I felt much better. I hope Dr. Barnes would understand and be happy that so many people can now enjoy his life's work!
