Register Now for Nature of Love Walk at Weir Farm National Historic Site
Contact: Linda Cook, (203) 834-1896
On Sunday May 19, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., discover the Nature of Love at Weir Farm National Historic Site with local scholar, poet, and volunteer Bonnie Tremante. Bonnie will discuss love letters exchanged between artist Julian Alden Weir and his then fiancée Anna Dwight Baker during the summer of 1882. In the letters, Julian and Anna express their deep affection for each other, their observations of nature, and nature's role in fostering the bond between them. Enjoy a walk through the spring landscape of Weir Farm National Historic Site as you learn about the connection between the art, the love, and the landscape that fundamentally affected Weir's appreciation of his Branchville farm. There is no fee to participate, but registration is required and space is limited. To register or for more information about the Nature of Love walk, please call (203) 834-1896 ext. 28.
Did You Know?
Painter Julian Alden Weir installed stars on the ceiling of all three of his studios. He had three studios: one in New York City, one in Windham, CT and one behind his home in Branchville, CT. Visitors will be able to see the original stars in his Branchville studio at Weir Farm National Historic Site once the Weir Studio has been restored in late 2013.
