What is Picturing America?

Picturing America is a new educational program package created to bring American history to schools in America. The program also seeks to create a humanities gateway and introduce citizens to their American heritage. The information is accessed via the school’s educational package or their website at www.picturingamerica.neh.gov

The idea to tell the story of the American history motivated the NEH to create Picturing America. The use of great American art to ensure our history’s rightful place, that the history is remembered, and studied was the concept behind this program. Funding for the program comes from the “We the  People” program at NEH, mostly. Additional financial support is provided by other federal agencies and private partners to the program.
