During the early republic, American ships brought back objects and images from China, India, Indonesia, southeast Asia, the Philippines and other parts of the Pacific, creating a more international visual culture at home. International scholars discuss the impact of American participation in global trade from the 1780s to 1850s on visual art production including architecture, painting, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, fabrics and clothing. Attendees may view Illustrated Voyage Narratives, an exhibition from the Salem Athenaeumís collection, as well as the Peabody Essex Museum, Federal period homes and more.
