PhotoExplore portraits, artifacts, songs, plays, and other art forms created during the Revolution.  . Using the collections of the MHS and the Museum of Fine Arts, participants will investigate a variety of visual and aural primary sources, and model tools for using these kinds of materials with students. We will also consider how the Revolution has been portrayed in art and popular culture over the last 250 years, from epic poems and graphic novels to recent Broadway musicals.
