Join us on Facebook as we go live with Dennis Carr, the Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington Library as he leads a virtual tour of the gallery where Thomas Cole’s “Portage Falls on the Genesee” is now on permanent display. This part of a continuous programming partnership between the SHM and The Huntington will trace this history of the painting, explore its Seward connections, and contextualize the ways that the artist offered it as a criticism of industrialization.
