New Eyes on America: Student Response

The Walters Art Museum is working with five high schools from Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Frederick County to create a focus show related to the special exhibition New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville. Students received a visit from a museum educator who introduced exhibition themes, including new forms of technology and communication such as the telegraph and penny press—both characteristic of 19th-century America. From October through December, the students spent time considering and discussing the Woodville exhibition and created artworks in response. Students developed projects ideas, and since technology plays such a significant role in teenagers’ lives today, the majority of the works will contain a digital component.
