Elsie Driggs1898-1992

James A. Michener Art Museum
Doylestown, PA

$15,000 toward a restrospective exhibition on the painter with accompanying catalogue, organized by museum curator Constance Kimmerle.. Born in New York City, Driggs was exposed to machine age designs by her father, an engineer and inventor and was perhaps best known for her precisionist paintings of airplanes, bridges, and steel mills in Pittsburgh. Also a mother and wife, Driggs often painted solely from her kitchen delicately producing small watercolors and collage of plant-life and insects.
