This weekend, head to the Brandywine River Museum of Art for two special events that celebrate the art and culture of the Brandywine Valley.

On Friday, July 11, the organization will host a Brandywine Arts Evening from 6 to 9 p.m. In keeping with the conservancy’s commitment to nature, all of the night’s entertainment will focus on the importance of water in our lives.

Brooklyn-based dance troupe Sight-Specific will debut its original work, We Are Water, and musician Catherine Marie Charlton will also perform two of her own pieces.

The museum’s galleries will be open throughout the event, and docents and staff will be on hand to discuss the current Lure of the Brandywine exhibition.

Brandywine Arts Evening is included with museum admission ($12 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6 for students and children ages 6-12, free for children under six and Brandywine Conservancy members). Food and drink will be available for purchase.

The following day, Saturday, July 12, the museum invites guests to celebrate the day of Andrew Wyeth‘s birth with free admission plus a slate of special programming.

Wyeth, one of America’s most significant artists, painted some of his best works in Chadd’s Ford. Docents will give special tours of the galleries and of Wyeth’s nearby studio. Jimmy John’s will join the fun and serve up Wyeth’s favorite hot dogs.
