Virtual Educator Evening: Charlotte Skinner: Paintings as Historical and Environmental Documents
Charlotte Skinner was an artist and educator who lived in the Eastern Sierra of California from 1905 to 1933. Guided by her appreciation for the natural landscape of the Eastern Sierra, Skinner created spirited works that portray the Owens Valley at a time of great economic, social, and political change in the region. Much of this disruption was a result of the construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct that diverted water from the Owens River to Los Angeles. Join Curator of Learning and Engagement, Megan Bellister, and analyze the environmental characteristics of places and explore how art preserves aspects of social-cultural and ecological life by looking at the work alongside Nevada Academic Content Social Studies Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
