Join our convivial party as we head to Philadelphia for the day. Our first stop will be the Barnes Merion, the original site of the Barnes Collection, where we’ll tour its magnificent arboretum whose fall foliage will be in peak form. Next we’ll enjoy an elegant two-course lunch at Stephen Starr’s Parc Restaurant, a classic French bistro in Rittendon Square. Then on to the Barnes Philadelphia for a docent-led tour of the museum’s remarkable post-impressionist and early modern collections, including many works by Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso and van Gogh. Registration deadline: Oct. 12.
