The Art of Jamie Wyeth tour
Fridays and Saturdays through March 28,
at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.
In conjunction with Jamie Wyeth's major retrospective, visit two of the Museum's National Historic Landmark sites that have particular significance to his development as an artist. The N.C. Wyeth Studio, built by Jamie Wyeth's grandfather, is the place where the young artist studied painting with his aunt, Carolyn Wyeth. The Andrew Wyeth Studio is a restored schoolhouse that was the home of Andrew and Betsy Wyeth and their two sons, Nicholas and Jamie. Later, when the entire structure became Andrew Wyeth's studio, the building was the location of Jamie Wyeth's first studio. It is here that the artist painted important works including Draft Age and Portrait of John F. Kennedy.
Guided tours leave from the Museum. Limited tickets for this special experience are available at the Museum on the day of the tour and cost $10 in addition to Museum admission ($5 for members).
