About Picturing America
Picturing America, an initiative from the National Endowment for the Humanities, brings masterpieces of American art into classrooms and libraries nationwide. Through this program, students and citizens will gain a deeper appreciation of our country's history and character through the study and understanding of its art. Through the Michigan Humanities Council, the Picturing America in Michigan Program also offers scholarships to classes for museum visits related to the arts and American History. The Dennos Museum Center is proud to be a Picturing America Museum Partner and help students learn about United States history through our collection of fine art.
