      Matthew Jensen: Alongside Tall Grasses
    • Sunday, September 21, 2014
    • The scenic landscape of the Brandywine will inspire a new work by Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Jensen. His interest in the Brandywine springs from childhood experiences exploring ruins along rivers and creeks. Focusing on and around Chadds Ford, his exhibit will include photographic and walking-based projects, with the resulting images and found objects to be displayed in a setting designed by the artist in the Museum's third floor corridor, directly juxtaposed with the landscape that inspired the work. A map created by Jensen will invite visitors to explore the environment surrounding the Museum.
