Picture This: Exploring The Great American Hall of Wonders
July 14, 2011


The Great American Hall of Wonders

American Art's The Great American Hall of Wonders exhibition opens tomorrow, July 15 and runs through January 8, 2012. Examining the 19th-century belief that Americans shared a special genius for innovation, the show is divided into six rooms which explore six subjects that helped shape the country during that period. The buffalo, giant sequoia and Niagara Falls represent our beliefs in our country's resources for fueling America's progress, while the clock, the gun, and the railroad focus on advances in technology.

Join exhibition curator Claire Perry via live webcast at 6:00 pm ET tonight (July 14) as she discusses "The Great American Experiment."
