Find Primary Sources in Online Exhibitions from the Library of Congress
Perhaps you will find a few extra moments on this beautiful snow day for contemplation. Set your imaginations free to enjoy the virtual exhibitions from the Library of Congress. Consider, for example, the Masterpieces of Illumination from the exhibition Arthur Szyk, the Artist for Freedom. The collection of artistic renditions of American ideology, founding fathers and documents is indescribable so please see it for yourself at: http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/swann/szyk/szyk-ex.html
Or perhaps The Earth as Art exhibition is more your cup of tea on this cold morning: http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/earthasart/eaa-exhibit.htmlFinally, see The Wizard of Oz http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/oz/ozsect1.html for a taste of the lighter side of primary source exhibitions but one which is still replete with literature and historical context.
