Art Wars: Virtual Tour with Deb Zelcer
After the Civil War, stewards of our young nation sought to develop artists with talent to rival that of Old Europe, elevate the level of refinement of the average American, and prove that we could be preoccupied with more than the almighty dollar. On this virtual Museum Mile tour, we'll discover how the keepers of our first cultural collections defined art and decided what would or would not hang within their walls, in the process competing with each other and the highbrow institutions overseas. This tour focuses on museum architecture as a reflection of their founders, missions, and the collections inside, and also features the surprising role the U.S. government played in defining what is art. Led by Deb Zelcer, Prowler Tours
