About This Show
Martha Severens, Curator of the Greenville County Museum of Art, has been asked by the SC Humanities Council to present a series of lectures around the state on the The National Endowment for the Humanities’ initiative "Picturing America" is an innovative program that helps teach American history and provides students with a gateway to the broader world of the humanities through visual imagery.
The NEH has selected 40 iconic pieces (art, artifacts, architecture), made high quality reproductions, developed a resource book, and is making them available to schools and libraries. She joins Dr. Edgar to talk about this exciting initiative.
