LECTURE: The Hudson River School and Our National Parks

Rebecca Bedell, Associate Professor of Art, Wellesley College

We tend to think of our national parks as places of untouched natural beauty. Yet they have been carefully, consciously, artfully shaped to accommodate visitors and orchestrate their experiences.

This lecture will focus on the role that the artists of the Hudson River School played in determining and defining both the locations of our parks and the ways we still experience and respond to their beauties today.
