ArtMatters presents AMERICAN ART – Part 1
Admission Free – All Are Welcome
The United States was not founded by schooled artists, but by people seeking freedom and adventure. American artists have been like America itself – pioneering, bold, and independent. Early American artists had their roots firmly planted in European traditions but explored their own frontiers and evolved their own unique flavor, forged in the struggles of the birth of a nation.
Join us for a look at the roots of American Art from 1776 until 1900 with its pioneering courage, independent drive, and rebellious spirit.
…and plan to return on
July 10 for Part 2 (1900-1950)
and on August 7 for Part 3 (1950-1990)
ArtMatters is an art awareness program designed to keep individuals connected to the world and encourage a loving relationship with the visual arts. ArtMatters brings “the museum” directly into each community.
