History of Art in the Minisink Region: The Pinchot Connection
March 19, 2022 $15.00 – $20.00
12:30 am - 2:30 pm
Note due to weather this event has been postponed to March 19th.
Marie Liu, Director of the Artery in Milford, PA and the 2015-2016 resident artist of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, will present the history of art in the Minisink region with an emphasis on the contributions of the Pinchot family.
James Pinchot, who built Grey Towers as his family’s summer home in 1886, was one of the first Americans to recognize a connection between art and natural resource conservation. He was an early supporter of the Hudson River School, which embodies the conservation movement.
Ms. Liu will speak about how religion, geography, and natural resources influenced the artistic potential of the region in the 19th century. She will also describe how the region inspired and supported a number of artists who made their home here and how that continues today.
This presentation at the Pike County Public Library will be followed by light refreshments and conversation.
Kindly arrive prepared to wear a mask, and enjoy the event!
