About the Chadds Ford Annual Art Sale & Show
Betsy Wyeth, wife of the late Andrew Wyeth, started the Chadds Ford Annual Art Sale & Show in 1949 and continued her involvement in the show while her son Jamie Wyeth was a student at Chadds Ford Elementary. The annual sale continues to serve as the school’s largest fundraiser, providing funding support for school programs. Chadds Ford Elementary was founded in the early 1900s and received the National Blue Ribbon in Excellence Award in 2008.
