This art history lecture will be viewed through the eyes of the presenter’s great, great aunt, Kate Minor, who was a significant part of the Movement. Throughout the study of this art, one can witness America at its beginnings – the new and breathtaking frontier. Our eyes will be awakened to the splendor of its Manifest Destiny. Emerson and Thoreau wrote of an elemental need for the wilderness. The common man believed in the greater purity of the natural environment. Nature was shaped by God and therefore, “fraught with high and holy meaning.” Presented by Professor Karri Fritz-Klaus of Cornerstone History Symposium.
Join us for the second lecture in a five part series, “The Great Awakening: Painters of America.” Mark your calendars for the remaining presentations (12/5: Winslow Homer, 1/9: Edward Hopper, 2/6: Wolf Kahn). Free to attend. No registration required.
