Wednesday November 1

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM


Meet Dylan Gauthier, Brandywine River Museum of Art’s current artist-in-residence, as he discusses his year-long inquiry into the Brandywine watershed and the culminating exhibition, Dylan Gauthier: highwatermarks, an immersive video and audio installation that presents a panorama on the course of Brandywine River and its surrounding communities. Gauthier will share insights about his research and documentation of the river and his work with Brandywine Conservancy staff throughout the course of his residency, and reflect on the role and power of art to shift societal perceptions of ecological issues.

The museum will open at 5:30 p.m., with a reception after the lecture. Dylan Gauther: highwatermarks is on view from October 7, 2017 to January 7, 2018.
