The Great American Adventure is an affordable and easy to understand
"walk through America" following a series of paintings
by Victor Horvath. Its goal is to introduce students to an exciting
adventure in the history of America, how it came to be and our
place in the world. This is depicted as a series of singular events,
each of which has been a turning point leading to our current
Each page concentrates upon one panel of Horvath's sectional painting
of the same title. His technique - known as "transparent
squares" - combines to become a mural covering 40 x 20 feet.
Significant as the work is, comparatively few people will have
the opportunity to view it and understand its message so the book
was created to explain each panel's inspiration and meaning in
words which have meaning and importance to students from early
education through high school levels. The format is unique and
is proven to be effective in developing a "sequence"
of learning in early education. The format not only gives information,
but also puts that information in a context which makes it relevant
to other information. Each event is no longer a singular fact
or circumstance but part of the on-going process of creating and
enhancing a society. This format may be used for future works
concentrating on particular people or events. The format lends
itself to several areas of marketing:
" Schools - as an important part of history and civics curricula;
also because of its unique format, the text can easily be translated
for use in
" Libraries - as both an art book and as a history book
" Special Applications - it would be invaluable as a tool
for new immigrants learning about America for citizenship requirements,
It is unfortunate that there are few programs in America's schools
and libraries which give younger students an introduction to art
and its significance to our society. The Great American Adventure
is the first major work to bring the importance of art to children,
explaining the role which art has played in recording significant
turning points in history and linking them in a long, unbroken
chain of events which lead us to the present day world. The work
ends on a positive note - stressing that despite the dark times
in human history human society has always found new and better
futures. Horvath, in the final panels of his work, speculates
on what lies ahead for humanity as it expands into space exploration
and explores the on-going evolution of man.
The Great American Adventure is ready to be presented to schools,
libraries and private parties as an important part of early education
in American history. It represents one of the few tools which
parents and teachers can use to create and teach a "chain
of events" which brought America to its present - and seemingly
the only educational device which combines the written message
with a visual representation. It is a truly unique and significant
new approach to teaching.
