Brandywine Arts Evening
Friday, July 11, 6 to 9 p.m.
Join us for an evening of immersive arts experiences featuring dance and music performances and art-making activities, all connected to the significance of water in our lives. The museum and galleries will open at 6 p.m. with Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art staff available to discuss the Lure of the Brandywine exhibition.
This innovative program will feature the premiere of We Are Water, an original dance by Sight-Specific, and musical improvisations by Catherine Marie Charlton from her award-winning albums, River Flow – Sanctuary and River Dawn: Piano Meditations. Nature is an integral part of the creative process for Sight-Specific, a dance company from Brooklyn, New York. Artistic director Emie Hughes’s childhood experiences with the Brandywine River during her Chadds Ford childhood provided inspiration for this dance. Catherine Marie Charlton is a Steinway Artist whose music has been praised for its “tranquil, yet evocative flow.”
Full bar and small-plate offerings available for purchase. The program is included with museum admission free for Brandywine members and children under 6.
