Programming and Events
We regularly host writers, musicians, and scholars at the Frost House, and offer workshops on mindfulness and writing.
This fall we’ll have a limited number of open sketch sessions in the barn, modeled after artist JJ Lankes Saturday Sketch Club, which he hosted while in art school. Dates to be announced.
This fall, join us for these exciting events:

Jay Parini, a renowned Frost biographer, poet, author, and Middlebury professor, will offer a reading from his New and Collected Poems and talk about Frost.
Tuesday, October 23, at 7:00 pm
Dan Chiasson, longtime poetry critic at the New Yorker, poet, and Wellesley professor, will offer a reading of his work and a discussion of his article on Frost, “Bet the Farm.”

Mindfulness & Writing, A One-Day Workshop with James Crews
$40 for members / $50 for non-members
In this in-depth, generative writing workshop, James will examine connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of writing fearlessly from the heart. All levels welcome.
Tuesday, September 11th, at 4:00 pm
Join Bennington College’s celebrated ecologist Dr. Kerry Woods for a “Botanizing Walk” —named after the walks Robert Frost used to take with his friends through the woods. Dr. Woods will share his extensive knowledge about tree and plant identification, and ways to appreciate the natural world on the grounds.
Sunday, September 30th, 9:00-11:00 am
Join us on Parents’ Weekend for apple cider. The house and grounds are free and open to museum members, as well as Bennington students and their parents. Discounted $5 entry for others.
