HISTORICAL NOTE

Portrait in the Attic was a sixth-grade art history program developed by Augustana College art history professor Catherine Carter Goebel and funded by the William Butterworth Memorial Trust. The program was designed to introduce sixth grade students to the art collections at the Butterworth Center and Deere-Wiman House in Moline, Illinois. The program was designed as a living history play in which the characters were played by visiting students.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Portrait in the Attic collection, circa 1990s and 2002, contains an introductory booklet and CD for teachers to use in preparation for participating in the program and four folders of photographs of Seton Catholic School students, kindergarten through fifth grade (K-5), creating and displaying various forms of artwork; the Paul A. Anderson Art History Research and Seminar Room at Augustana College; and two unidentified Augustana College students posing with a statue of Diana of Gabii on Augustana’s campus.
