The Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Community Arts Center

February 2019

Soup & Sandwiches…Bacon & Eggs…Ben & Jerry…all are unique pairings that, when combined, create some rare (and yummy!) results.

When Art & Music are served up together, it can create an amazing one-two-punch for the senses.  

So we encourage you to visit a renowned Art Museum and beloved local Art Center that will be rocking & rolling this month, hosting music (and all that jazz!) amid rare and beautiful works of art.
