To celebrate the 9th annual Art Museum Day, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will offer free admission and special programming Friday, May 18. An initiative of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), Art Museum Day gathers hundreds of institutions from across North America to recognize the arts and the important role that art museums play in their communities.
In addition to free admission on May 18, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will offer two Art Museum Day programs. At 11:30 a.m., visitors can join a docent-led tour of the Museum’s six galleries, exploring different highlights within the collection. At 2 p.m., Museum curators Christine Podmaniczky and Audrey Lewis will host a gallery talk focusing on “Three Generations of Wyeth Art.”
The theme for Art Museum Day 2018 is Hyperconnected Museums, a recognition of the many ways in which museums serve as central points of connectivity within their communities, both online and in person.
