A Curator's Conversation
May 2, 2021
If you happened to wander into Phillips’ Mill in the spring of 1929 you would have witnessed the first organized exhibit of member artists. You would have seen works by William L. Lathrop, Daniel Garber, John Folinsbee, George W. Sotter – just to name a few. The Phillips’ Mill was the heart of the artistic community in New Hope and these artists started the arts community on the Delaware river. The works of these talented artists reside in museums and private collections across the country. The artists became the renowned New Hope School of American Impressionists.
Join us as Laura Turner Igoe takes us back to the beginning of the Phillips’ Mill Community Association as we explore works in the collection of the Michener Art Museum.
