A Special Gallery Tour of Andrew Wyeth in Rockland
September 26, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Join museum curators and educators for a more focused look at some of the museum’s key summer exhibitions. All tours will depart from the main lobby, with the exception of the N.C. Wyeth: Poems of American Patriotism and The Wyeths: Family and Friends tours, which will meet in the Wyeth Center lobby.
Wyeth made occasional painting sojourns to Rockland between 1939 and 1989 and while Rockland is not a major theme of Wyeth’s work these paintings document Rockland’s architecture and industrial past. Many of the sites he painted are now recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of these paintings are exhibited for the first time.
