Pieces from a Philadelphia art workshop will soon be on display at a Connecticut museum. 40 works from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives have been acquired by the Fairfield University Art Museum to be prepared for exhibition. Founded in Philadelphia in 1972 by artist Allan Edmunds, Brandywine provides community engagement, local arts programming as well as sponsors residencies for well-known and undiscovered artists alike.
Fairfield's newly acquired works are a part of Brandywine's initiative to place "satellite collections" in university art museums across the nation. 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 the only Brandywine satellite collection in Connecticut, and is one of only 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.
