The World Around Us: People, Places and Things allows for groups to explore portraits, still lifes, and landscapes in a variety of different mediums throughout time, examining how artists express their ideas and feelings about the world around them through art-making processes.
Everhart Unveiled: An Exploration of the Museum’s Collections takes groups on a journey through the natural and artistic history of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Learn about artistic conceptions of prehistoric natural history, and discuss scientific discovery through scientific illustrations; identify unique physical traits of birds; compare several artists’ perspectives as represented in their works; and explore the region’s coal history.
