America’s Story Through Art Lesson 5: America Diversifying: 1945-2000

from Cleveland Museum of Art

Program image

By examining American art and artifacts from the CMA’s collection, this series promotes discussion on America’s national character and heritage.

The empowerment of various segments of American society from the post-war period and beyond forms the major focus for this lesson. Students will be asked to discuss such themes as civil rights, changing gender roles, the rise of the consumer, the decline of social hierarchy and the impact of technology on American life and art. An in-program viewing guide provides an interactivity for students to design their own symbols for these developments.
