    Between 1912 and 1951, Albert C. Barnes assembled
one of the world's most important holdings of post
impressionist and early modern art. By integrating art and
craft, and objects from across cultures and time periods,
Barnes sought to demonstrate the continuity of artistic
traditions and the universal impulse for creative expression.

     The Bus Trip will take place during the final days of 
the current exhibition: Ensemble: Albert C. Barnes and the 
Experiment in Education on display May 18, 2012 - 
March 18, 2013. This textured exhibition charts Barnes's
important friendships, collaborations, and discourse with
artists, philosophers, educators, collectors and dealers-
including William Glackens, John Dewey, Violette de
Mazia, Leo Stein, and Paul Guillaume- as he assembled
his collection, refined his aesthetic and educational theories,
and established the curriculum of his Foundation.
