Chesterwood Estate and Museum
Originally the 1920s summer home, studio and gardens of sculpture Daniel Chester French, the site is now open May through October, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM; there are works by French on display, as well as changing exhibits of contemporary sculptures, a museum shop, a variety of events, and more.
I was convinced to visit Chesterwood on a larger trip through the recommendation of a handful of acquaintances. I'm glad I made the stop! Though the price was a bit high, the experience was phenomenal. The house itself is a bit disappointing, but the studio was fascinating and informative. They do heavily emphasize the Lincoln memorial in Washington but they also show some lesser-known works and even some more personal works that are not widely known. By the end of the tour, I really had a deep appreciation for Daniel Chester French as an artist. It's a shame it's such a long haul from other places (with the exception of the Norman Rockwell Museum)
