@ Weir Farm National Historic Site. Wilton, Connecticut

 

Weir Farm National Historic Site is located in Ridgefield and Wilton, Connecticut. It commemorates the life and work of American impressionist painter J. Alden Weir and other artists who stayed at the site or lived there, to include Childe Hassam, Albert Pinkham Ryder, John Singer Sargent, and John Twachtman.

Weir Farm is one of two sites in the National Park Service devoted to the visual arts. Both sites maintain ongoing artist-in-residence programs; to date, the Weir Farm Art Center (formerly the Weir Farm Trust) has hosted more than 150 artists for monthlong stays at the site.

 

Weir Farm also runs an ongoing "Take Part in Art" program, under which visitors can create their own works on site.

 

Weir Farm will be recognized on the 52nd quarter in 2020 as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
