Walnut Club members are invited to a brunch and private artwork exhibit tour at The Barnes Foundation.

We'll begin our morning with a docent-led tour of the special exhibit, Alexey Brodovitch: Astonish Me, followed by brunch at the Garden Restaurant, located inside The Barnes.

Our tour will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m., followed by brunch at 11:30 a.m.

Bring a woman who inspires you!
When it comes to celebrating the modern womxn, we can't forget to also honor the amazing females in our lives who helped make us who we are, the ones who cheer us on every day, and the ones we are raising to be fierce and fabulous.

Walnut Club members are encouraged to invite 1 - 2 female guests to join in this special day. Bring your mother, sister, best friend, or daughter to spend the day with the WOWs (Womxn of Walnut)!

There is no charge for Walnut Club members or their guests to attend the tour & exhibit. All guests are responsible for their own meals.

About the exhibit: 
Russian-born designer, photographer, and instructor Alexey Brodovitch (1898–1971) is best known as the art director of the American fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar between 1934 and 1959, where he infused the publication with a new modern aesthetic, making photography the cornerstone of its visual identity. He is also known for his mentorship of an extraordinary number of celebrated documentary and fashion photographers, including Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Eve Arnold, and Lillian Bassman, and his work with luminaries such as Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, and Martin Munkácsi.

Presented in the Roberts Gallery, this exhibition focuses on the significance of this influential but often overlooked figure and considers his collaborations with many of the major figures of 20th-century photography.

This event is for members and their guests only.
At registration, you may select to attend brunch & the tour or just the tour.

Members must be logged into the website in order to register.
