When: Sat., Dec. 1, 10:15 a.m.-1 p.m.
Acclaimed author and illustrator, Hudson Talbott, brings us his newest book, Picturing America: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Art, for a presentation and book signing. Presentation at 11 AM. Picturing America introduces children to the life of Thomas Cole (1801-1848), who founded America’s first major art movement, the Hudson River School of landscape painting. In the process, Cole became a pioneering advocate for environmentalism, long before there was an environmental movement.
