La Salle University Art Museum receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

 

The History Hunters Youth Reporter Program is an award–winning national, collaborative, literacy–based program closely linked with Philadelphia’s public school curriculum guidelines for teaching Pennsylvania and American history. Through the leadership of Stenton and under the auspices of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of American in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, History Hunters provides immersive history lessons for fourth– and fifth–grade students at five historic sites in Germantown: Stenton, Cliveden, Belfield/La Salle University Art Museum, Johnson House, and Wyck.

History Hunters provides an opportunity for underserved students to experience Germantown history first–hand through innovative, hands–on programming and confidence–building activities that incorporate reading, writing, art, science, and geography lessons. History Hunters engages students with real places and objects in order to create a lifelong love of American history and a reverence for the past.

The La Salle University Art Museum has been invited to join the History Hunters Youth Reporter Program starting in the 2014–15 academic year. For details, click here.
