New J. Alden Weir Video

JaldenweirDr. Anne Dawson at Eastern Connecticut State University has created a web site on the great impressionist artist, Julian Alden Weir, and Windham, CT.  http://weirinwindham.org

In the late 1800s and early 1900s Weir lived in Windham Center (and elsewhere), married into a Windham Center family, and painted many Windham/Willimantic scenes.  The newest addition to the site is a video documentary called “Love at First Sight: J. Alden Weir in Windham CT, 1882-1919.”
