For Immediate Release:|
THE BRANDYWINE RIVER MUSEUM HONORS
THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF ANDREW WYETH WITH
FREE ADMISSION ON JULY 12
Andrew Wyeth once told an interviewer that, "Painting has been my one interest, nothing else but art," and the museum's trustees and staff feel that the finest way to honor him is to enjoy the art he created. Currently on view in the Andrew Wyeth Gallery are temperas, watercolors, drybrushes and ink washes created by the artist.
Tours of the N.C. Wyeth House and Studio, the Andrew Wyeth Studio and the Kuerner Farm, locations important to the artist, are available this summer for a fee of $8 each or on special packages that include two properties and a guided gallery tour.
The Brandywine River Museum, located on U.S. Route 1 in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, is open daily (except Christmas Day) from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for seniors ages 65 and over, $6 for children ages 6 and older and free for children 5 and younger and Brandywine Conservancy members. Museum admission is free on Sunday mornings through November 24, from 9:30 a.m. until noon. For more information, call 610-388-2700 or visit www.brandywinemuseum.org
