A six-day teacher seminar that will explore the works of art in the NEH's Picturing America image set. Forty Philadelphia-area teachers whose schools have received the image set will have the opportunity to connect these select works of art--representing three centuries of our shared national heritage--to objects in the Museum's renowned American collections, and to cultural and historical institutions across the region.
