Developed in 2007 by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Picturing America is a resource for teaching American history and other humanities subjects. Originally, it contained 40 large, high-quality color posters of a diverse selection of American artworks and an educators resource book, filled with teaching ideas and background information to support the use of the posters in core subjects.
