Weir Farm National Historic Site is offering a free, one-hour Nature of Love Walk on Sunday June 11, 2017 from 10:00 to 11:00 am with local scholar, poet, and volunteer Bonnie Tremante. Enjoy a walk through the lush, summer landscape of Weir Farm National Historic Site as you learn about the connection between art, love, and landscape that fundamentally affected Weir's appreciation of his Branchville farm. Bonnie will discuss love letters exchanged between artist Julian Alden Weir and his then fiancée Anna Dwight Baker during the summer of 1882. In the letters, Julian and Anna express their deep affection for each other, their observations of nature, and nature's role in fostering the bond between them
