‘Picturing America’ at the Library

The work of American artists Childe Hassam,hassam Richard Diebenkorn, John Singleton Copley, Dorothea Lange, John J. Audubon (born near Nantes), and Jacob Lawrence are on display at the Library now.

These handsome reproductions were created by the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts “Picturing America” series of American masterworks for use in schools. The American Library was fortunate to receive a set. We’ll be rotating the images periodically.

The rotation succeeds recently-displayed works by John Singer Sargent, Thomas Hart Benton, Mary Cassatt, and Walker Evans. Circulation manager Ed Aguila did not want to lose the photograph of Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature house, Fallingwater, at the checkout desk, so it remains.
