A Tale of Two Treasures: Horace Pippin’s Birmingham Meeting House & Birmingham Hill Preserve

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday January 14

7:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Join Curator Audrey Lewis and Manager for Municipal Assistance Sheila Fleming on Zoom as they explore two of Brandywine’s great treasures: Horace Pippin’s painting, Birmingham Meeting House in Summertime and the Birmingham Hill Preserve.  


Pippin, a West Chester native and World War I veteran, created four versions of this compelling subject, which may have had personal significance for the artist. Built in the mid-1700s, the Birmingham Meeting House is located within sight of Birmingham Hill, the location of some of the fiercest fighting during the Battle of Brandywine and now a Brandywine Conservancy Preserve.   


Registrants will receive a link to the the live Zoom discussion room in their confirmation email. The room will open 10 minutes prior to the start of the event.
