Brandywine River Museum to host story-reading, book-signing and art activities
The fascinating and challenging life of West Chester artist Horace Pippin will be the focus of a family workshop, author’s talk and book-signing at The Brandywine River Museum on Sunday, Feb. 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Children will have an opportunity to listen to A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin, a new children’s book written by Chester County author Jen Bryant and illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winner Melissa Sweet. After the story, visitors can see Pippin’s paintings in the gallery and make pictures with the color red.
At 1 p.m., Bryant will discuss researching and writing the book, followed by a book-signing. Museum admission is free until noon on Sundays through Nov. 24, with the exception of Memorial Day weekend.
