Legacies and Landmarks of the Wyeths in Our Backyard

Wednesday, May 21, 7pm, Duportail House, Chesterbrook, PA

 TREDYFFRIN, PA—The Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust will hold its second spring lecture at 7 pm on Wednesday, May 21, on the historic landmark properties associated with the American painters NC and Andrew Wyeth. The lecture presented by Robert Wise will be held at the Duportail House, 297 Adams Drive in Chesterbrook, PA.

 Mr. Wise, an historic preservationist and principal in Wise Preservation Planning, has worked extensively over the past 15 years with the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art. He was instrumental in securing the highest recognition as National Historic Landmarks for NC Wyeth’s house and studio, Andrew Wyeth’s studio, and the Kuerner Farm, where Andrew Wyeth created many of his most famous works.

 “Robert’s lecture, based on his presentations to the National Park Service’s National Historic Landmark Advisory Committee, offers unique insights into these historic structures and the remarkable paintings and personalities that made them famous,” notes Pattye Benson, Trust President and Chair of its Historic House Tour. 

 Tickets for the lecture are $15. For reservations or more information, please contact THPT by telephone at 610-647-1051 or by e-mail at info.tredyffrinhistory.org.
