      Dear Art Educators,

      Smithsonian American Art Museum has put out a new book and companion
      web site - America's Art.

      14. America's Art
      http://americanart. si.edu/americas_ art

      This companion Web site to a new book of the same title from the Smithsonian
      American Art Museum (SAAM) will serve many readers as well as the book
      itself. While the web site lacks the large-size, printed reproductions of
      artwork and introductory texts of the book, it never the less provides
      reasonable screen resolution images of all of the 225 works reproduced in
      the book. The web site is organized into 16 chapters, starting with "From
      Distant Shores", which contains artwork documenting the immigrant
      experience, and ending with "Toward the Millennium", which is artwork
      created in the last 20 years of the Twentieth Century. In addition, the
      America's Art Web site links into SAAM's online permanent collection. This
      allows visitors to read caption information from the exhibition labels for
      each work of art,....[DS]
      ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- -
      The book/website is organized by themes - and somewhat in chronological order.
      I will be linking this on my page on American Art.

      This site was recommended in Scout Report (Copyright 2006). See all of
      the recommended sites at:

      If you would like to receive the Scout Report every Friday go to:
      http://scout. wisc.edu/ About/subscribe. php
      There is usually one art related site each week.
