Drawn from her 2019 dissertation, Dr. Amanda Lett will discuss the art of engraving before the Civil War in an unexpected media: paper money. Easily acquired and more easily discarded, engravers poured their best efforts into the small pieces of art that passed through the coffers of every type of business and person in the United States. Through this most common item, Dr. Lett will show how Americans learned to appreciate art.
