By Christine B. Podmaniczky, Curator, N.C. Wyeth Collections and Historic Properties, Brandywine River Museum of Art
 
What was it like growing up in the family of the renowned artist/illustrator N. C. Wyeth? Christine Podmaniczky, curator of N. C. Wyeth collections and historic properties at the Brandywine River Museum of Art and author of the N. C. Wyeth catalogue raisonné, will talk about the setting in Chadds Ford and the formative years of the Wyeth children, largely guided by their hands-on famous father. N. C. Wyeth felt that creative adults were those who retained the spirit of childhood, and he went to great lengths to provide his children with opportunities for experiences that would significantly shape their adult lives.

Christine B. Podmaniczky holds an MA from the Williams College Graduate Program in the history of art. Her involvement with the art of the Wyeth family began in 1980 at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine, where she worked as curator until 1985.
