Picturing the Americas International Symposium at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

In conjunction with the special exhibition Picturing the Americas: Landscape Painting from Tierra del Fuego to the Arctic, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art hosted an international symposium featuring scholars from both North and South America. Panel discussions focused on topics central to the themes of the exhibition, including “Land, Icon, and Nation,” “Art and Exploration,” and “Modernity in the Landscape.” This public symposium presented an opportunity for scholars, educators, students, and the public to come together for an international exchange of views on a range of subjects connected to and inspired by landscape painting from Canada to Peru. The symposium addressed a broader consideration of landscape painting in the Americas.
