Most received formal training either abroad in Italy or Paris or at the Boston School of Fine Arts, Chicago Art Institute or with notable American impressionists. A few became nationally acclaimed while participating in Darien’s Guild of the Seven Arts and teaching locally. Established in 1953 as the Darien Historical Society, the Museum of Darien has crafted objects, narratives and works of art that have shaped the community of Darien.
