Class #6: Ebony


In today’s class we were introduced to a new exhibit, A Shared Legacy. This exhibit has a lot to do with American History. It’s centered around the 1800’s-1920’s time period. It was really interesting learning how exactly gender and economic status were shown in portraits and the stories behind every piece of art. It’s as if you were walking into just settled land. My favorite painting was the one about William Penn and the Quakers, “A Peaceable Kingdom” by Edward Hicks.
