Gallery Talk: What Hath God Wrought?



Admission actions

  • Free with museum admission

American history can, at times, appear to be splintered with narratives representing a variety of communities at odds with one another. Join educator Sam Anderson-Ramos for a participatory conversation that considers the ways in which 19th-century American art built a cohesive story out of many, one as inspiring as it is problematic.
