Join Woodmere in celebrating the Woodward family's history of transformative generosity, which has helped define the character of Chestnut Hill. In the early decades of the twentieth century, George and Gertrude Woodward recruited Violet Oakley (1874-1961), an artist who advocated for an integration of the arts into all aspects of community life, and her circle of artists, the Red Rose Girls, to live and work in Chestnut Hill. This exhibit will include portraits by Oakley (1874-1961) and other works related to the Woodwards' civic involvement
Woodmere is proud to install "Spring & Triangle (2016)," a monumental sculpture by Dina Wind (1938-2014) that has been enlarged to almost ten times its original size--from 37 inches to 30 feet--thereby fulfilling the artist's dream. Spring & Triangle is designed to interact with the natural environment, and it will be sited on the Museum's front lawn. Join Woodmere on June 11 to cut the ribbon and attend a lecture with the sculpture's fabricators, who will describe the enlargement process. An exhibition of Dina Wind's work, Springs, will be on view through the summer.
