Pieces from a Philadelphia art studio will soon be on display in a Connecticut museum. 40 works of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives were acquired by the Fairfield University Art Museum to be prepared for the exhibition. Founded in Philadelphia in 1972 by artist Allan Edmunds, Brandywine offers community engagement, local arts programming, and sponsorship residencies for known and unknown artists.
Fairfield’s newly acquired works are part of Brandywine’s initiative to place “satellite collections” in university art museums across the country. According to a press release, these collections are intended to “bring the art of diverse cultures to institutions and communities that wish to enrich or diversify existing collections.” Fairfield University is Brandywine’s only satellite collection in Connecticut and one of 18 satellite collections in the United States. The university joins the Harvard Art Museums and the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. among other institutions with Brandywine satellite collections.
