Of Determination and Despair

Of Determination and Despair - (Adult)

Feb 19, 2014
(6:00 PM - 7:30 PM)

The 1930’s was an age of extremes beginning with a drought that ruined rural farmland in the prairie states as well as a dangerous flood affecting the entire Ohio River valley. Both events displaced thousands and deprived farmers and owners of their livelihoods. Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s WPA employed artists and photographers to document these catastrophic situations. Karen Tannenbaum, Art Historian will lead a presentation about many of the famous regionalist photographers, painters and graphic artists who recorded this era.
