    Memoir and N. C. Wyeth’s Letters

    Brandywine River Museum of Art

    Where:
    1 Hoffman's Mill Road, Chadds Ford, PA 19317
    When:
    • Tuesday July 16th 2019, 6:00pm to 8:00pm

    N. C. Wyeth's surpassing gift for narrative made him one of the most famous illustrators of all time. But his narrative talents can also be found in the letters that he wrote—letters that captured the mood of the day, the curiosity of a child, the weight of the snow, the wonder that galvanized him as well as the anxiety that could set in.

     

    Beth Kephart will explore the autobiographer in N. C. Wyeth and recount a special trip she took to Wyeth's grandson's home, where she held Wyeth history in her hands. The Brandywine River Museum of Art will open at 5:30 p.m. with the program at 6 p.m. and a reception to follow.

     


    This program is part of The Art of Stories presented by PNC Arts Alive—a multidisciplinary celebration of the narrative arts and the ways in which stories are crafted, saved and shared including discussions, performances and opportunities for artistic self-expression.
