Visualizing the War of 1812
Sidney Hart, Ph.D., Senior Historian at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, will present an illustrated lecture at the USS Constitution Museum about the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery's upcoming bicentennial exhibition, 1812: A Nation Emerges, which will open on June 15, 2012. Dr. Hart will highlight some of the art works in the exhibition and will show not only works by American artists who depicted the heroes and battles scenes of the war, but also works by Canadian and British artists, some of which have never been exhibited publicly. The USS Constitution Museum is proud to be Boston's first Smithsonian Institution Affiliate. Supported by the Lowell Institute Lowell Lecture Series.
