Save $5 to see Water, Wind, Breath at the Barnes and Native American Voices at the Penn Museum.

An image of two people floating in water on the left, and a silver belt buckle with turquoise on the right, pieces from exhibits on display.

Co-curated by the Penn Museum, the Barnes Foundation, and New Mexico’s Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, Water, Wind, Breath: Southwest Native Art in Community is a major exhibition showcasing objects that Dr. Albert Barnes collected in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, as well as works by contemporary Native American artists. For Southwest Native peoples, the creative practices of making and using pottery, textiles, and jewelry are not just decorative arts—they are living traditions that sustain health and well-being for individuals and communities.

To deepen your experience of Native American art and history, we’ve teamed up with the Barnes to offer $5 off adult admission to both museums! 

How it works

  • After seeing Water, Wind, Breath, present your Barnes ticket onsite at the Penn Museum and receive $5 off adult admission, including access to our Native American Voices: The People – Here and Now exhibition that highlights a living tapestry of Nations with distinct histories and unexpected identities.

  • Barnes and Penn Museum members: Show your valid member ID onsite at either museum and save $5 off adult admission.
