Ongoing Events & Announcements

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Location: 1 Hoffman's Mill Rd, Chadds Ford, PA 19317 Description: NEW TERRAINS: AMERICAN PAINTINGS FROM THE RICHARD M. SCAIFE BEQUEST Included with Museum admission New Terrains presents over twenty-five important works of American art from Richard M. Scaife, a Pittsburgh philanthropist and former trustee of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art. The exhibition showcases paintings by artists that are new to the collection, such as Hudson River School painters Martin Johnson Heade, John Kensett, and Albert Bierstadt, whose luminous, contemplative views of nature influenced the grand tradition of mid-nineteenth-century landscape painting in America. Other exciting introductions to the collection through the Scaife bequest are works by American impressionists William Merritt Chase, Theodore Robinson, and Edward Redfield, Julian Alden Weir and others. These late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century artists changed the course of American landscape painting through their adaptation of trends in European art. Their interpretive approach to rendering their surroundings with vibrant color and energetic brushwork is amply demonstrated in the exhibition. These paintings and more featured in New Terrains honor Richard Scaife and his generous vision for the Brandywine and represents a milestone in the museum’s collection of American art.

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Location: Brandywine River Museum of Art Description: Flowery Thoughts: Ceramic Vases & Floral Ornament at Winterthur. Since antiquity, humans have been fascinated by the beauty of flowers. They created special containers to hold the blooms, reproduced flat images of flora on surfaces or, alternatively, modeled flowers in three dimensions. In this exhibit, Leslie B. Grigsby, Winterthur’s Senior Curator of Ceramics & Glass, presents a selection of some of the enormous range of ceramic vases and floral-decorated wares from the Winterthur Museum collection. These eye-catching objects primarily date from the 1700s and 1800s and, variously, were produced in America, Europe and Asia. The high-fashion wares among these ceramics originally found homes in elegant settings, while other objects reflect what was enjoyed by those of lesser means. Some of the featured floral designs studiously imitate imagery from botanical publications, while others display a freedom and originality not expressed in Nature.

  • UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation: Location: State of Delaware Description: The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan. In Delaware, very few families applied for grants last year. That’s why we are reaching out to you, as a broadcaster, because we know you are committed to informing your listeners about important issues such as this that will inform listeners about the foundation and encourage them to apply for grants. We created a Public Service Announcement campaign, to encourage parents and legal guardians to apply for grants of up to $5,000 (lifetime maximum of $10,000 per child) to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids by completing an online application at www.uhccf.org; there is no deadline. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible. Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded over 10,000 grants valued at more than $29 million to children and their families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. Your radio station serves as a vital link in getting out important health information to the public. The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation hopes you can partner with us and broadcast this important health message.
