Keurner Sounds

Media Title

Two Weeks Only: Commissioned Sound Piece by Artist Michael Kiley at Kuerner Farm Visitors to the Kuerner Farm from May 13 through May 24 will hear Kuerner Sounds, a pop up experience by noted Philadelphia-based artist and composer Michael Kiley, www.michaelkiley.com, as part of the guided site tour. To create Kuerner Sounds, Kiley manipulated existing sounds from the farm and layered them with original tones to create an atmospheric piece representing his personal aural response to the site. Intended to bring attention to both the creative process of the artist and the specific sound qualities of the farm, this temporary installation is supported by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. A working farm located in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Kuerner Farm served as a site of creative inspiration for artist Andrew Wyeth for over seventy years. Wyeth’s attraction to the farm involved all of his senses, including hearing, and his works depicting the site evoke the richness of his experiences there. Tours of the farm including the sound element leave from the Brandywine River Museum at 2 and 3:15 p.m. each day and cost $8 in addition to regular museum admission of $12 for adults; $8 for seniors, $6 for students and free for Brandywine Conservancy members. Tickets are limited and may be purchased in advance online at www.brandywinemuseum.org or by calling 610-388-8326; same day tickets may be available at the museum admission desk. Kuerner Farm is a historic property of the Brandywine River Museum.
