Brandywine River Museum Launches Imagine Brandywine

“Imagine Brandywine,” a new exhibition space at the Brandywine River Museum for the display of creative art projects by area school students and inspired by the museum’s collection and landscape, debuts on November 10. The inaugural display features more than 150 works by students in kindergarten through sixth grade from the Avon Grove Charter School (AGCS), located in West Grove and Kemblesville, Pennsylvania.

Each year, the Brandywine River Museum serves more than 6,000 students through its field trip program, as well as offering workshops for educators. Seeing original works of art is an educational experience that cannot be duplicated in the classroom. The museum offers students from kindergarten through grade 12 the opportunity to make connections between school learning and the outside world. The museum offers 15 different thematic guided tours for school groups that may be adapted to the curriculum and level of the group. Programs link art to a variety of subjects, including American history, literature, environmental studies and geometry. Financial assistance is available to schools in need for admission and transportation costs.

The exhibition by the students from AGCS will be on view through January 5 on the lower level of the museum. Future exhibitions of work by students from the museum’s partner schools, including Caln Elementary in Coatesville and Chester Charter School of the Arts, will take place in 2014.

The Brandywine River Museum is internationally known for its unparalleled collection of works by three generations of Wyeths and its fine collection of American illustration, still life and landscape painting. The museum also has three historic properties, the Andrew Wyeth Studio, the N.C. Wyeth House and Studio, and Kuerner Farm, which are open for tours from April through November. The Brandywine River Museum is a program of the Brandywine Conservancy.

The Brandywine River Museum is located on U.S. Route 1 in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. The Museum is open daily, except Christmas Day, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults; $6 for seniors, students and children ages 6 to 12; and free for members and children under six.
