The United States was not founded by schooled artists, but by people seeking freedom and adventure. American artists have been like America itself, pioneering, bold, and independ- ent.

Join us for a look at the roots of American Art from 1776 until 1900 with its pioneering courage,independent drive, and rebellious spirit.
