Art and History intersect at the point where people shape their environments. This lecture presents a version of Vermont history that begins with looking at objects made and used by the State's early settlers. In developing their towns, Vermonters created a wide range of things that speak to their values, background, skills, and cultural attitudes. Their architecture, gravestones, furniture, ironwork, paintings, pottery and textiles are evocative documents of specific people, places and situations. This lecture will demonstrate how art and artifacts can be used to understand historical experience. It will also introduce the audience to outstanding public and private collections throughout Vermont which they may like to visit.
