Staycation is Over But Weir Farm Was Great!

August 10th, 2010 · No Comments · Destinations, Websites

It’s back to work this week for me but I wanted to share our trip to Weir Farm with you! Weir Farm is the only National Park in Connecticut and it is just beautiful!  The tour we took with our ranger (Allison) was tremendously informative and fun.  This farm that belonged to painter J. Alden Weir is comprised of over 150 acres and is right in our own backyard.  There are trails to explore and many programs–including Take Part in Art that allows you to “discover your inner artist while sketching en plein air.”  There is also a wonderful Artist-In-Residence Program that “selects artists to spend one month living and working at the farm.”  Each month, Wilton Library hosts an Exhibition/Reception for the Artist-in-Residence.  Register for upcoming Exhibitions/Receptions:  August 24: Annie Varnot, September 23: Diana Greene, and October 28: Andrew Jones.  Enjoy the pictures my husband Michael took at Weir Farm during our visit!
