The Art of Gettysburg and the Civil War collaborative lecture series and tour program planned for fall

Muskegon Community College Art Instructor Tim Norris and History Instructors Kurt Troutman and George Maniates will present a voyage through Civil War American art and history in The Art of Gettysburg and the Civil War, a special series of six lectures will be presented at the Muskegon Museum of Art Frey Auditorium. The lecture series will be followed by an optional four-day guided excursion to Gettysburg National Military Park in October 2015. The project is a collaboration of Muskegon Community College and the Muskegon Museum of Art.

Learn how the Civil War—the pivotal event in American history—not only changed the course of our country but also shaped the work of artists such as Winslow Homer, an artist represented in both painting and fine art prints in the Permanent Collection of the Muskegon Museum of Art. Gain an understanding of how our nation’s memorials and monuments have evolved over time and how the fledgling art of photography came of age in the 1860s to forever change people’s view of war.

The deadline to register for either the lecture series or trip, or the combination of both is September 11. 2015.
