Ready to dance the night away at the Barnes?

The Barnes Foundation only hosts a few Young Professionals Nights each year, and the first of 2019 is coming up. On Friday, Jan. 18, explore the impressive art collection after hours and dance the night away.

The evening's theme is "Winter Wild," inspired by the work of Henri Rousseau and William Glackens.

When exploring the Barnes, look for Rousseau's exotic jungle scenes, and Glackens' portraits of women in feathers and furs. If you're sticking with the theme, see how many images of wild life you can spot throughout the Barnes, too.

As for music, DJs will combine global beats with live percussion and visual art. Their goal is to make it feel like a street festival is happening inside the Barnes.

Attendees will be able to view the art collection 7 to 9 p.m., but the party will continue until 10. Tickets are $35.

As for what to wear, the Barnes suggests going bold with spots, stripes and animal print for this Young Professionals Night.
