    Why the Black Lives Matter protest outside a Philly police officer's home was not 'illegal occupation'
    "It is shocking to me that Police Commissioner Richard Ross and Mayor Jim Kenney allowed this illegal occupation to go on for hours without taking any action to enforce the law..." Since Black Lives Matter protesters rallied last week outside the home of the Philadelphia Police officer who shot and killed David Jones, several politicians and local leaders have jumped in to defend the officer and condemn BLM's actions.

"Just as generations before us have done, it’s important that we also do our part." Great opinion piece from Evelina Bodon and Felicia Harris about getting involved within our communities.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.

Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) painted “The Card Players” from 1890–1892. The one that hangs at the Barnes is the largest of several versions completed by the artist. Speaking to the might and strength inherent in Cézanne’s work, Dr. Barnes wrote: “The essential and fundamental effect of Cézanne’s form, in its best estate, is the quality of power, rendered in legitimate painting terms. Perhaps no other painter has so successfully made power the keynote of his design; not even Michelangelo…” Look for this monumental work in the main room of our Collection Gallery. 🎨 Paul Cézanne.
