Re-Framing American Art/History 
Tuesdays,6–7:30 PM | $50/$15 per class | Members $35/$10

Join Dr. Christian Ayne Crouch, Associate Professor of History at Bard College, with specializations in early modern Atlantic world history, Native American and Indigenous Studies, slavery, and empire, and Dr. Anna Marley, Kenneth R. Woodcock Curator of Historical American Art at PAFA, for a critical re-framing of iconic artworks in PAFA’s collection. Using methodologies from art history, history, and material culture Crouch and Marley will teach participants how to use art as a historical source. They will also offer methods to help participants deconstruct historic images that also empower them to analyze the construction of American citizenship through art and visual culture. Each session will begin with two key works in PAFA’s collection and the class will pose four key questions about American art history – whose history, whose America, whose gaze, and whose monument.

October 6 | Whose History? 
October 13 | Whose America? 
October 20 | Whose Gaze? 
October 27 | Whose Monument?

Important Note: To help accommodate diverse schedules, individual class sessions will be recorded and made available to class participants for a week after each class takes place.
