On October 7th the Museum will open a stunning and very personal audio & video exhibit: Dylan Gauthier: highwatermarks

This is the first US solo museum project by the Brooklyn-based artist who created this master work during a year-long residency at the Museum. 

Combining Video, Sculpture, Performance and Digital Media, this exhibit transforms the Museum's third floor gallery into a 4-channel, 4K video installation that narrates the path of a single drop of water down the course of the Brandywine and documents the local communities through which it flows. 


The Brandywine River
Shot on location in the Brandywine Watershed and surrounding region, the project traces the river’s headwaters among the farms of the Honey Brook Township, through industrial towns like Coatesville, and the rolling hills of Chadds Ford, to the public water supply to the city of Wilmington, DE.

highwatermarks presents the river and its people through four seasons, blending views from the Brandywine landscape with on-water shots filmed from a small boat constructed by the artist earlier in his residency.

Also opening on October 7: Time Scale
