The Land of Nod by Xiomaro | Weir Farm National Historic Site
   
Land of Nod by Xiomaro | Weir Farm National Historic Site

Weir Farm National Historic Site is Connecticut's first national park unit and the only one in the country dedicated to painting.  It was the homestead of Impressionist painter Julian Alden Weir.  

Weir and his friends called his property "The Land of Nod," a reference to a place located on the East of Eden as referred to in the book of Genesis.  Both Weir and Childe Hassam used the phrase to title works that were inspired by the local landscape.

This National Park Service commission will focus on the exteriors of the historic buildings and their natural surroundings, which served as the basis for many iconic paintings.
