Delaware Valley and First State Bailliages are hosting a joint event!

Join us at the Brandywine River Museum of Art, for a champagne reception, full access to the extensive collection of the Wyeth family’s art as well as other American 19th and 20th century art, followed by a 4-course local and seasonally focused dinner crafted by the celebrated chef MacGregor Mann in a private dining room overlooking the Brandywine river.

Discover a distinguished collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art, housed in a renovated nineteenth-century mill with a dramatic steel and glass addition that overlooks the bucolic Brandywine River. The extraordinary site—the intersection of art and nature—emphasizes the Brandywine Conservancy’s commitment to the preservation of the natural, cultural and scenic resources of the region.

Renowned for its holdings of the Wyeth family of artists, the Museum’s outstanding Heritage Collection is a cross section of American art, with a special focus on artistic practice in the Brandywine valley.
