The scenic backdrop of the Brandywine River inspires a newly commissioned work by Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Jensen. The installation derives from immersive walks taken by Jensen throughout the summer months in the landscapes along the Brandywine and its tributaries. The verdant slopes, quiet footpaths, native flora, historic towns and small discoveries are all subjects in Jensen’s photographic work. The artist is known for embracing new photographic technology as means to explore landscape and he will continue to push the medium with this new work.  The resulting images and found objects will 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.

Over his remarkable seven-decade career, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) created thousands of drawings in graphite and watercolor, a body of work that he rarely exhibited. The drawings in this exhibition provide a fascinating glimpse into his creative process. They were created by Wyeth in preparation for four paintings—Faraway (1952), Corner of the Woods (1954), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), and Garret Room (1962). Each drawing is part of the process Wyeth used to work out his vision for his paintings. Many were sketched outdoors and reveal Wyeth’s immediate response to figures or objects in a composition. The exhibition includes 23 drawings and three paintings.

Priceless antiquities. Ruthless grave robbers. International criminals who rob the cultural heritage of Italy, trading in goods stolen from the necropolises of Tarquinia to the posh auction houses of London, England, from the seedy underbelly of the black market to world-renown museums.Ripped from the case files of the Guardia di Finanza, stories like these will be told during “Treasures and Tales of Italy’s Guardia di Finanza Art Recovery Team,” a groundbreaking exhibition of priceless works of Etruscan and Greco-Roman art and craftsmanship, on display at The Grand Opera House from Oct. 3-Dec. 21.Each ancient ceramic, mosaic and statue in the exhibit tells a story, not just of the time of its creation, but also of its theft and recovery by the indefatigable agents of the Gruppo Tutela Patrimonio Archeologico, the art recovery team inside the Guardia di Finanza. The Guardia di Finanza, with headquarters in Rome, is Italy’s national law enforcement agency tasked with fighting financial crime and recovering stolen art and artifacts.

Storm Large: musician, actor, playwright, author, awesome. She shot to national prominence in 2006.Storm spent the 90s singing in clubs throughout San Francisco, then moved to Portland.  Storm made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. She continues to perform with the band, touring nationally and internationally, and she will be featured on their upcoming CD, Get Happy. Storm has also sung with Grammy winner k.d. lang, pianist Kirill Gerstein, punk rocker John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton.She debuted with the Oregon Symphony in 2010, and has returned for sold out performances each year thereafter. Storm made her Carnegie Hall debut in May 2013, singing Weill's Seven Deadly Sins with the Detroit Symphony. The NY Times called her "sensational," and the classical music world instantly had a new star. Cariad Harmon will bring a welcome dose of British charm and wit to 10 venues in the Northeast this fall. London born Harmon who now resides in the indie music capital of Brooklyn, NY will hit the road fueled by the forthcoming release of her Sophomore self-titled album, due out Nov. 11.Harmon’s most obvious talent lies in her ability to tell stories with her folk-inspired songwriting that can be ironic, cheeky, vulnerable, and at times euphoric. Harmon’s lyrics are delivered with an emotional directness and effortlessly flow as she splays them over nuanced guitar work and keeps audiences entertained with personal anecdotes and stories to melt even the hardest of hearts.A 2013 International Songwriting Competition semi finalist, Harmon has caught the attention of Verbicide Magazine, New York Magazine, and Rolling Stone. Her forthcoming self-titled album features performances from Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius and Mike Savino of Tall Tall Trees and will be released in November 2014.

When Cécile McLorin Salvant walked away with first place in the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, the jazz world''s most prestigious contest, the buzz began almost immediately. If anything, it has intensified in the months leading up to the launch of her Mack Avenue Records debut, WomanChild, which peaked at No. 4 on Billboard''s Jazz Albums chart. Not only was she the youngest finalist, but she''s also a mystery woman with the most international background of any of the participants.In addition to her flamboyant performance of jazz standards, Salvant composes music and lyrics which she also sings in English, French (her native language) and Spanish. Cécile charms her audience with pleasurable stage presence as she performs unique interpretations of unknown and scarcely recorded jazz and blues compositions. Stephen Holden from The New York Times announced that "Ms. McLorin Salvant has it all…. If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three—Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald—it is this 23-year-old virtuoso.”www.CecileMcLorinSalvant.comThis engagement of Cecile McLorin Salvant is funded through Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts.
