Picturing America and the Art of Perception: Reconsidering How We See

Amy Herman, Director of Educational Development at Thirteen/WNET, demonstrated her methodology of improving observation, perception, and communication skills by learning to analyze works of art using the Picturing America images. In this highly participatory session for librarians, Amy engaged participants in a dialogue about looking at art and how to make Picturing America images accessible to audiences who do not have formal art historical training.
