A project of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association:
Picturing America, an exciting new initiative from the National Endowment for the Humanities, brings masterpieces of American art into classrooms and libraries nationwide. Through this innovative program, students and citizens will gain a deeper appreciation of our country’s history and character through the study and understanding of its art.
Participating institutions will receive:
- Forty large, high-quality color reproductions of the selected masterpieces (24” x 36”).
- A Teachers Resource Book providing a wide range of ideas and background information to support educators using the works of art in core subject areas.
- Additional resources and lesson plans available through PicturingAmerica.neh.gov.
You can peruse these materials and apply online. Applications are due by April 15, 2008; public libraries, K-12 schools, and home school consortia are eligible.
