Virtual Exhibition - American Art and National Identity
The exhibition American Art and National Identity is the second in a series of exhibitions interpreting the permanent collection of the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University. It is part of a larger project entitled “Nature and Culture in American Art” which was made possible through a matching grant from the Indiana Humanities Council in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional support was provided by the Brauer Endowment and Valparaiso University. This series was designed for teachers and students of all ages to use the museum’s collection as a “visual library” to study the humanities through art. Each exhibition in the series was first realized as a pilot on-line exhibition which was discussed by a focus group of teachers in the humanities.
