Picturing America, Picturing New Mexico

A two-day conference in Fall 2010 with a follow-up meeting for forty New Mexico social studies, language arts, and art teachers (grades 8 and 11) to study cultural and historical experiences of diversity reflected in Picturing America.

The University of New Mexico Art Museum proposes to convene a two-day, National Endowment for the Humanities Picturing America: Making the Human Connections Conference in Fall 2010 and one-day in Spring 2011 for up to 40 New Mexico secondary school teachers whose schools have received the Picturing America portfolio. The conference theme will examine how the cross-curricular study of primary sources (artwork, objects) can motivate students to cross personal boundaries to communicate with the broader narrative of American history, thereby making meaningful and relevant human connections.
