Photoshop Exercise:

Over the past few years we've been gathering materials for a small exhibition on The Index of American Design. We've also had a few projects that focused on cover art of the period, pulp fiction, science fiction, The Saturday Evening Post and Fortune Magazine.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to begin acquiring images for an exhibit of the American Scene painters, Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, John Steuart Curry, Reginald Marsh, Stuart Davis and Ben Shahn. We already have an excellent site on Grant Wood and we can mine it for the new project. We'll form up in pairs, each pair will take an artist, and then go to the Fine Arts Library and troll for images to digitize, something on the order of 10 per team.
