VIRTUAL: An Examination of American Art -- 1900 to 1950

The center of the art world has always been Europe, and American artists have, by necessity, mostly followed those evolutions. The American independent spirit pushed the boundaries of acceptable traditions, and in the early part of the 20th century Americans begin to develop their own unique voice; the Ash Can School, the flowering of photography, and the consciousness of Social Realism were just some of the new developments that reflected the history of those times. Join us for a look at how American Art grew from the baby in the back seat to an adolescent growing, experimenting, gaining attention and earning respect. Led by art historian Jane Blair, founder of ArtMatters. She has a BFA from Boston University and a MFA from University of Illinois. Blair has been an art educator in many fine art studio disciplines as well as Art History, Art Appreciation, Computer Art, Photography, and Graphic Illustration.
