A Yellow Springs Walking Tour

As we begin, you are standing on the South porch of the Lincoln Building. If you face south you are about 6 miles from the Great Wagon Road that you know as Route 30. The road you are looking at below you is today called Yellow Springs Road.  It was long called the White Horse Road because it led to the White Horse Tavern, a building still extant today at 606 Swedesford Road in Frazer. Today Yellow Springs Road proceeds south through the north rim of the Great Valley and ends near Great Valley High School. The Lincoln Building; where we begin. Notice the change in elevation as you drive up and down hills. Then, stop to realize this: on the evening of September 16, 1777, 10,000 American soldiers marched for 12 hours in a driving rain from the White Horse Tavern to the Yellow Springs. Many came up the road you are looking at including George Washington and his aide Alexander Hamilton. While at the “Yellow Springs” they reported to Congress that the army had no ammunition of any use and needed to march to Warwick and Redding Furnaces to retrieve dry gunpowder. At the time Washington and Hamilton wrote that letter the building behind you was a stable. As you look out towards Yellow Springs Road, you see an array of buildings. Beginning to the east (your left) is another barn which may also date to the time of the American Revolution. It is a modified version of a Swiss bank barn, a style brought to America from Europe. There is a ground floor forebay where livestock...

2020 Yellow Springs Art Show: Jurying

2020 Yellow Springs Art Show Jurying Process The jury process is a traditional part of the Yellow Springs Art Show.  It allows us to maintain a continuously evolving roster of artists and their work, which provides a new and different experience for our visitors each and every year.  The jury consists of art show committee members who have been working with the show for many years. THE PROCESS IS EASY Submit Artist Application by Friday, August 30, 2019. Produce four pieces of work to bring to the jury process. Provide pricing, titles and present your artwork as if it were to be hung in the show (clean mats, well framed, etc.) We will schedule a convenient time for your appointment on September 19th and 20th. You will be in and out of the Jury in about a half hour. NOTE: We don’t get into long conversations with jurying artists.
