Video Conference Backgrounds

Bring the Brandywine to your next video conference with new background graphics that can be uploaded as a backdrop to your virtual get-togethers. Choose from a selection of famous works in our collection, scenes from our campus and stunning nature preserves, and backdrops from inside our historic artist studios.
