Biography

Burt Chernow was an art historian, writer and teacher who began his career as an art teacher in the Westport school system.

In 1967, while chairman of the Housatonic Community College's art department, he founded the Housatonic Museum of Art.

He wrote many articles and books about modern artists, and was one of the founders of the Westport Arts Center.
