2023 NEH Diverse Historical and Cultural Perspectives in Native American and African American Art: Budget Reflection

2023 NEH Diverse Historical and Cultural Perspectives in Native American and African American Art: Budget Reflection

This was my fourth NEH Summer Institute, it was a one-week trip because we already had a lot going down this summer; however I definitely prefer longer NEH institutes. I was very interested in learn more about African American and Native American art because I have no background in that area from my degree yet there are some prominent pieces in the AP Art History curriculum. Toledo was definitely not my favorite city, but the museum was first rate and I got along with my roommates really well.
