In honor of Jamie Wyeth’s 75th birthday, The Brandywine River Museum of Art's gift shop is launching a new art-on-demand program allowing people to create customizable art. Available for purchase through the museum’s online shop, five new art reproductions have been created in collaboration with Wyeth. These reproductions are handcrafted on-demand, using state-of-the-art technology, and printed on 100 percent acid-free fine art paper to ensure quality and longevity. All works are available in multiple sizes and frame choices and will be shipped directly to the buyer. View the collection here.
