The Wyeth family and their art to be discussed at Ilsley Library

MIDDLEBURY — Shelburne Museum director Thomas Denenberg will discuss the influence of the Wyeth family on American art and culture in a talk at Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 7:00 p.m. His talk, “The Wyeths: First Family of American Art,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.
Denenberg will talk about three Wyeths — N. C. (1882–1945), Andrew (1917–2009), and Jamie (b. 1946) — and offer new perspectives on these three painters who have shaped the way Americans view their world.
Denenberg is the director of Shelburne Museum. Prior to moving to Vermont in 2011, he served as the chief curator and deputy director of the Portland Museum of Art (Portland, Maine), curator of American art at Reynolda House (Winston-Salem, North Carolina), and curator of American Decorative Arts at the Wadsworth Atheneum (Hartford, Connecticut).
