Brandywine River Museum of Art

Every year, art lovers from around the world make a pilgrimage to a restored grist mill on the banks of the Brandywine Creek. Their mecca? The Brandywine River Museum of Art, home to three
generations of Wyeth art. This year, the journey will be sweeter as the museum marks the 100th anniversary of Andrew Wyeth’s birth with an exhibition that will be the first in-depth chronological examination of his career since 1973. The Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect exhibit will include both well-known and rarely seen works and will explore the evolution of the artist’s work over the decades.

There are lots of reasons we “heart” the arts at
Main Line Art Center. Sure, you can sign up to
take classes (the art center has been a frequent recipient of best-of awards for art instruction), but there are so many other amazing things that happen here. We’ve been to events there that had fire spinners and stilt-walkers adorned with LED lights. We have also gone to Artini nights, which start with a cocktail and end with finished personal art. And don’t get us started on their numerous Accessible Art programs — they’ve offered exemplary programs for both youth and adults with developmental and physical disabilities for more than 50 years. Yep. We definitely  them.

SENSORY GARDEN PARTY
seminal repertory theater — meaning that it was home to a group of
actors who stayed in residence and built a repertoire of material. Today, Hedgerow continues to grow from those roots, living out the same vision and delighting loyal audiences with a year-round calendar of both classic and new works. The performances all happen in an intimate, rustic space inside a charming grist mill that looks like it’s straight out of a fairy tale — and it very well might be — since the stories told here always seem to be magical.

No matter where you’re from, it’s
possible that you’ve seen the art
made with molten metal, soldering
irons, and hammers and chisels at this
Chester foundry. The Harry Kalas statue that stands at Citizens Bank Park was forged here, as was the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. located in the civil rights leader’s eponymous park in Chester. The foundry also cast eight giant eagles, two 10-foot wreaths and 24 bronze reliefs for the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. The foundry is not open to the public, but online videos allow visitors to see how these skilled craftsmen make the art that is larger than life.
