Silvermine art colony


Located in New Canaan, Connecticut, this colony was founded in the early 1900s and was led by Solon Borglum, who loved the countryside. The group met in Borglum's barn that became known as the Knockers Club and then, outgrowing that facility, built the Silvermine Guild Arts Center, which was formally incorporated in 1922. In 1924, the School of Art was officially opened there, and in addition to visual arts, classes were offered in dance, film making, and acting.
