Brandywine River Museum of Art Offers Free Admission All Day on the First Sunday of the Month

First Sundays for Families feature special hands-on creative art activities sponsored by PNC Arts Alive

Chadds Ford, PA January 21, 2016  For the first time, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will offer free admission to visitors all day on the first Sunday of every month from February to November in 2016. These First Sundays for Families will feature special hands-on creative art activities sponsored by PNC Arts Alive and designed to engage visitors of all ages.

“The Brandywine River Museum of Art is committed to providing access and education to the community, and through these Free Sundays, with an expanded and robust array of family programming, we are able to provide visitors with a more immersive experience,” said Thomas Padon, director of the museum. “We are delighted that PNC Arts Alive is the sponsor of the programming for First Sundays for Families again for 2016, building upon its sponsorship of our Sunday morning family programming last year. I am grateful to PNC for allowing us to offer free admission for the entire day on the first Sunday of each month.”

The inaugural First Sundays for Families program for 2016 will be held on February 7. Called “Seeing Red,” families can create Valentine’s Day cards using a variety of collage materials. On Sunday, March 6, families will enjoy “Crayon-a-thon,” and coloring outside the lines is encouraged.

First Sundays for Families is generously funded by PNC Arts Alive, a multi-year, multi-million dollar initiative of the PNC Foundation, which receives its principal funding from The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. The goal of PNC Arts Alive is to help area residents gain access to the arts and to help arts organizations expand and engage audiences.

The Brandywine River Museum of Art features an outstanding collection of American art housed in a 19th-century mill building with a dramatic steel and glass addition overlooking the banks of the Brandywine. Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas, the museum is located on U.S. Route 1 in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
