Friday night at the Barnes, hundreds of Philly’s young art lovers and professionals attended the Barnes Foundation’s “Into the Blue” Young Professionals Night, a lively and extravagant event, complete with a view of the private collection of fine art items. Most attendees were wearing the color of the night: blue.

The evening started with the private Contemporaries party, a dynamic group of young patrons and art enthusiasts who make up the young friends of the Barnes. There was an open bar and light snacks were passed around as partygoers enjoyed music by DJ Adrian Hardy. The professionals party began an hour later in the main gallery. Guests enjoyed music curated by Mole Street Productions, which included Matt Cappy and his quintet performing the legendary Miles Davis album, Kind of Blue. York Street Hustle took to the stage to close out the evening.
