Barnes Jawn(t): Chris Grant
See Event Description
Join us for an evening tour full of make-believe as we play fast and loose with everything you thought you knew about the Barnes. In Philadelphia, jawn is catch-all word for anything. A Barnes Jawn(t) is an anything-goes tour of the collection with a fascinating Philly personality as your guide. These off-the-cuff, sure-to-run-off-the-rails tours are led by a diverse array of community leaders, artists, and comic-book nerds—all experts in their fields. No two tours will be the same. After taking a Jawn(t), you’ll never look at the Barnes the same way again! Chris Grant is the cofounder and editor-in-chief of Polygon, a gaming and entertainment website covering everything from the people who make games and the players who love them to the movies and TV shows that captivate us. He’s spoken about video games at MIT, Stanford, the Smithsonian, and game industry conferences, and has appeared on CNN, BBC, NPR, and NBC discussing the art and industry of gaming.
