April 29th Bus Tour Visits the Brandywine Museum of Art and the Hagley Museum

On April 29th, Easton AAUW is sponsoring a double-barreled bus trip to the Brandywine Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA and the Hagley Museum near Wilmington, DE.
Nestled in a valley among rolling hills, the Brandywine Museum is renowned for its collection of the Wyeth family of artists, with three special galleries devoted to three generations — N. C., Andrew, and Jaime Wyeth. The museum also offers a cross-section of nineteenth and twentieth century American art, emphasizing regional artists. Special exhibits during the visit include a collection of Andrew Wyeth’s botanic works, “Every Leaf and Twig” and “Jamie Wyeth: Unsettled”, a group of his darker work.
Further along the Brandywine River, the 235-acre Hagley Museum complex is located on the site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont in 1802. Our two-hour guided tour includes the original du Pont family home, the gardens, the barn, restored mills, the gunpowder factory, and nineteenth century worker’s homes. The new “Nation of Inventors” exhibit celebrates the “American spirit of ingenuity.”
You may bring your own lunch and eat indoors or out at the Brandywine Museum or sign up for pre-paid lunch options at their Café. The bus leaves Easton at 8am and returns around 5:45pm. The tour cost of $105 covers the bus and admission to both museums. Tour profits help support Mature Woman’s education grants the Easton Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) awards to Mid-Shore Women.
