It’s not everyday that an art museum and an artisan ice cream brand get together. But that’s the case with the “Barnes Ensemble,” an ice cream sandwich inspired by the Barnes collection and available exclusively at the the Weckerly’s pop-up location at the Barnes Foundation’s Parkway location. The pop-up will operate from Wednesday, August 24th through Monday, September 5th.

The Barnes Ensemble” was inspired in part by the Barnes Arboretum and the Foundation’s commitment to horticultural education and appreciation. The ice cream sandwich includes organic milk from Camphill Village Kimberton Hills in Kimberton; and Lemon Verbena from CHICORY, a flower farm, and Farm 51 in Philadelphia.

The “Barnes Ensemble” will be available for $5 at the Weckerly’s ice cream cart. The cart will be at two locations during the pop-up:

  • Barnes Foundation driveway on 20th Street (between the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Callowhill Street): Wednesday, August 24 through Sunday, August 28, noon – 6pm
  • Barnes Foundation Fountain Plaza at 20th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway: Wednesday, August 31 through Monday, September 5, noon – 6pm (There will be extended hours on First Friday, Sept. 2: noon – 9pm and on Free First Sunday, Sept. 4: 10am – 6pm)
