Social change reflected in art
Monday, August 2, 2021, 4:00 PM until 5:30 PM
Registration is recommended
Volunteer docent Bob Ferguson returns to take BMAV members on a tour of how American artists responded to moments of significant social change across the history of our country. We will view pieces from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and discuss Manifest Destiny and the westward migration, Emancipation and Reconstruction, the Industrial Revolution, the Gilded Age and its demise, the evolving life of formerly enslaved people in the deep south and the lives of immigrant workers in the U.S.
