My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Brandywine Conservancy, Inc., Chadds Ford, PA, USA
I remember as a child in High School visiting the museum and seeing Night Sleepers for the first time. I was so mesmerized as I listened to the tour guide say that the work was done with egg tempera. In my mind all I heard was eggs. I thought wow Andrew Wyeth paints with eggs. Even though that was strange to me the work stayed with me forever. I am now an egg tempera painter myself, showing my work nationally, winning awards, and painting beautiful works in egg tempera. I owe it all to that one visit as a child that haunted me with the beauty of Andrew's work. I live in Texas now so I don't get to visit as often as I would like. However every time I go back to PA one of my most important goals is to always go back to the museum where I got the original inspiration as a child to be an artist and breathe anew in the magic that is the Wyeth family tradition.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The amazing and magical work by three generations of Wyeths.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Very nice and always willing to explain the work more.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Open museums in other states for people that love the work but live too far away.
Ways to make it better...
If I could have stayed longer.
