There are unlimited connections between American visual art and literature. Join a docent to view the Museum’s galleries through a new lens, exploring common trends in artistic and literary movements throughout American history.
This tour will focus on the ways in which women writers from the 17th- to the 21st-century, such as Anne Bradstreet, Phyllis Wheatly, Emily Dickinson, and Toni Morrison, reflect similar cultural and aesthetic beliefs as their contemporaries in the visual arts. We will explore how both artists and writers helped shape our understanding of American values through their work.
