Throughout the year, the Friends of the Physick Estate presents a variety of entertaining events that help raise funds for continued preservation of Cape May's only Victorian house museum, the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate.
Friends of the Physick Estate Trip to the Barnes Foundation Thursday, May 11
Immerse yourself in the greatest private collection of impressionist, post-impressionist and early-modern paintings. Explore more than 3,000 masterpieces, including 181 Renoirs, 69 Cézannes, 59 Matisses, 46 Picassos, 16 Modiglianis, and 7 Van Goghs, plus textiles, metalwork, decorative objects, African sculpture, Native American ceramics and jewelry, and Pennsylvania German furniture.
Your Barnes experience includes a Docent-Led Tour (one hour long guided tour) where specially trained docents lead you on an exciting voyage of discovery that features highlights of the collection, key artists in the collection, the history of the Foundation’s educational mission, as well as the thinking behind the extraordinary presentation of these masterpieces. There will be time to self-guide after the tour.
For lunch on your own, enjoy an la carte menu at the Garden Restaurant, or pick up light fare from the coffee bar. Philadelphia's renowned Starr Catering Group offers delicious fare at the Barnes, with a seasonal menu at the restaurant and small bites at the coffee bar.
