By bringing high-quality reproductions of notable American art into public and private schools, libraries, and communities, “Picturing America” gives Cagayanons the opportunity to learn about American history and culture in a fresh and engaging way. The program uses art as a catalyst for the study of America—the cultural, political, and historical threads woven into America’s fabric over time.
