New Eyes on American Art curated by Henry W.

Thousands of items are in storage at the Walters Art Museum. Not all of these have been photographed, and in some cases they have never been properly studied. With a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services staff at the Walters have worked to digitize more than 600 American art works from the permanent collection to add to the museum’s “Works of Art” website. These paintings, drawings and miniatures are now freely available to view and use without copyright restriction. As part of the digitization process paintings and drawings were taken out of their frames, and the fronts and backs of portrait miniatures were shot in full color at high resolution. Information such as artist, medium, date, and provenance were checked, researched and updated in the museum’s database. We are excited to share this previously hidden part of the collection with you.

How would you shape your story?

Andrew Raimist's curator insight, March 1, 1:06 AM

Kurt Vonnegut's rejected anthropology thesis proposed that the shapes of a culture's stories was at least as important as the shapes of their pots and spearheads.


I've been interested about the potential relationship of literary form to visual form, how we understand them logically, intellectually and emotively. How could a drawing, painting or work of architecture express the ideas contained in a work of literature through the use of form?


You can see Vonnegut discuss his ideas on the shapes of stories in this clip on YouTube:

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?
