J. Alden Weir & His Circle
Art and Letters
From the Collection

Through October 31, 2018, Visitor Center

In an era before telephones, email, and text messaging, Julian Alden Weir, his family and his friends wrote weekly, sometimes daily letters to each other. Thousands of these letters survive in the museum collection of Weir Farm National Historic Site and countless stories unfold from within their pages.

J. Alden Weir & His Circle, Art & Letters from the Collection pairs a selection of these letters with artwork in the collection. Together, the letters and art reveal tales of artistic endeavor, romance, loss, friendship, recreation and parental love. One hundred and thirty-six years after Weir acquired this rocky farm in 1882, the stories of those past live on.

This exhibition will be on display in the Visitors Center during regular hours until October 31, 2018.
