Step Inside Weir Farm National Historic Site
Weir Was Here -- Secret Rooms, Doors and Windows is a traveling exhibit of photographs shot at Weir Farm National Historic Site by Xiomaro, a New York-based artist. You can glimpse the richness of this show via the following video.
This solo exhibit features photographs from the first artistic collection documenting the beauty and textures of the interiors of J. Alden Weir's house and studio, which are all presently closed to the public.
Weir was one of the founders of American Impressionism and his homestead is now Weir Farm National Historic Site in Connecticut. Each photograph is titled so that a poetic narrative unfolds about Weir, his artistic contemporaries and successors, and the site's continuing legacy as both a national park and as an incubator for new talent through its internationally respected Artist-In-Residence program.
