Program areas at Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art

The Brandywine River Museum of Art engages audiences through its presentation and interpretation of American art with a particular focus on the Wyeth family and other artists who lived and worked in the Brandywine Valley region. Since its founding in 1971, the Museum has assembled a collection of over 4,000 objects from the mid-nineteenth century to the present with major holdings of landscape and still-life painting, illustration, and paintings by three generations of the Wyeth family. The Museum has a distinguished program of temporary exhibitions and publications that have made significant contributions to scholarship in the field of American art. In addition to its collection, the Brandywine owns and makes open to the public seasonally three historic properties, all designated National Historic Landmarks, that include the studios of N. C. and Andrew Wyeth.
The Brandywine Conservancy (the Conservancy) works for preservation and wise management of natural, historic, and scenic resources of the Brandywine Valley and surrounding areas with particular and strong emphasis on the preservation of land, water supplies and agriculture. Through this program, the Conservancy acquires conservation easements on open spaces and often on historic lands and, as of this filing, has 510 easements which are regularly monitored to assure landowner's compliance with the restrictions in each easement. The program aids municipal governments in the region on environmental issues such as storm water management, ordinances of various types affecting land and water resources, and land use planning. The Conservancy owns more than 3,008 acres of land which it carefully manages to help preserve land and water resources and to serve as models of high standards in the stewardship of natural and agricultural lands.
