Educational Resources

Besides our extensive eMuseum we will be adding additional resources in the future.

Currently you can get an indepth look into Thomas Hart Benton’s, Arts of Life in America murals, which are located here at the museum. These panels depict the ’Arts’ of everyday life - music, games, dance, and sports. They also show regional diversity, unemployment, crime, and political nonsense. They give a comprehensive portrait of life in the 1930’s.

We also have an online version of our Children’s Guide. This guide explores 17 paintings here at the museum and it is just as informative for young adults and adults as it is for children. When you come to visit the museum we will give you your very own Children’s Guide in order to explore all the pieces of artwork on an up close and personal level.
