Art in School and Public Libraries

Picturing America℠ is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), in cooperation with the American Library Association (ALA). The goal of Picturing America℠ is to enhance the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture by bringing some of America’s greatest works of art into school classrooms and public libraries.

Picturing America℠ will provide K-12 schools and public libraries with 40 images of American art, an illustrated teachers resource book, and a web site containing additional information including lesson plans. Educators and librarians are invited to apply online from January 7 through April 15, 2008.
