Christmas Open House

December 12-12, 2023
Linda L. Bean Conference Center
6 - 8 pm

Join ISI this Christmas and Holiday season at our Christmas Open House in our newly dedicated Linda L. Bean Conference Center.

This festive evening will feature local Award-winning historian W. Barksdale Maynard from the University of Delaware. He will speak on his book The Brandywine: An Intimate Portrait. From the Battle of the Brandywine in 1777—a character-forming crucible of war for George Washington—to the rise of the Brandywine School of Art, our region has made rich contributions to American liberty, arts, and culture.

Maynard tells the fascinating story of the men and women who shaped our home into a place whose pastoral beauty and cultural riches have attracted millions of visitors from around the world.

Join us for an open bar reception, lecture, and Q&A as we celebrate the Brandywine Valley’s contributions to the American tradition.

Business casual attire is requested, and we look forward to seeing you on December 12th.
