The collection was beautiful and certainly broadened my knowledge of and appreciation for American art.
The gift bag for NAEA members was very thoughtful!

|I was drawn to this and had no idea it was Stuart Davis |

|Another Stuart Davis|
|Woman Standing, Holding a Fan|
|Although, I have never seen this work of art, |
I knew right away and from a distance this was Winslow Homer.
Crossing the Fields
|Interesting painting and reaction to Eakin's portrayal of nudity, |
also his self-portrait in the right, bottom corner.
There were so many wonderful pieces to share but I'll end this post with a couple of works

Civilizations are most often remembered for their art and thought...I have always believed in the definition of an educated man or woman as one who could, if necessary, refound his or her civilization. That means we must teach our students more than hard facts and floppy disks. We must teach them the rich artistic inheritance of our culture and an appreciation of how fine music enriches both the student who studies it, and the society that produces it...The existence of strong music and fine arts curricula are important to keeping the humanities truly humanizing and liberal arts education truly liberating" - Ronald Reagan
