    Workshop Reminder/Deadline Extended

    The Graphic Arts Department at the Library Company of Philadelphia will host a Visual Literacy workshop generously supported in part by the Center for American Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art in July 2020.

    Title: Urban In-sights: A Workshop in American Visual Culture and Literacy from the Eighteenth through the Early Twentieth Century
    Dates: July 27-29, 2020
    Location: Library Company of Philadelphia, 1314 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
    Application Deadline: March 27, 2020 (Extended to April 3, 2020)

    This three-day workshop aims to enhance the skills of historians, art historians, archivists, curators, and other university, library and museum professionals, as well as graduate students who use images to interpret American art, history, and culture. We seek to augment and strengthen participants’ ability to identify, “read,” and analyze graphic material, including prints, photographs, watercolors, paintings, ephemera, and other two-dimensional objects. As the program uses Philadelphia as a focal point, priority will be given to applicants interested in using visual and material culture to explore urban topics.
