Art Beat – On the Clock: Art and the NFL Draft

  • Time: 1:00pm–2:00pm

The selection process that The Westmoreland and the Brandywine River Museum entered into as they divided the substantial collection of art bequeathed to both museums by Richard M. Scaife carried all the drama of the NFL draft including, the clock! Armed with research and a wish list, each museum brought a plan for selecting the art that was not only most historically important but which filled gaps within each collection. Meet the museum’s “team” as they present several notable selections from the estate and discuss the behind-the-scenes strategy that brought them home to us.

Presented by Judith O’Toole, The Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO; Barbara Jones, Chief Curator; Doug Evans, Collections Manager: and Casey Bowser, Registrar.

George Inness (1825 – 1894), Moonrise, Alexandria Bay, 1891, Oil on Canvas, 30 x 45 inches, Bequest of Richard Mellon Scaife, 2015.65
