Father, Son and Grandson - The Wyeths, Famous American Artists

On the way home from Philadelphia recently, I wanted to stop by the Brandywine River Museum of Art, a collection of early American art focusing mainly on art done in the area and with a primary focus on the Wyeth family artists. Visitors can visit the old family home and studios on the property. It's very pretty there and the artwork is stunning! I'm so glad that it was a recommended stop on my way home! Here are some examples of Wyeth art and a photo of Andrew's studio.

The Vessel

There is so much to see in New York City! On my second trip this year, (which is funny because I've only been there a few times in my whole life, mostly in the last three years) we knew we had to see this new sculpture designed by British Designer Thomas Heatherwick. I learned that is was built mostly in Italy in secret and brought by pieces to New York in Hudson Yards in Manhattan. It was completed at the beginning of the year. Of course not everyone would like it but I love it! I think it's very clever and interactive.

There is an elevator.

At the top!
