Dorothea Lange’s America

Dorothea Lange, Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California, 1936. 23 x 18 inches, Frame size: 32x26 inches

September 18–December 31, 2014

Lange’s empathetic images of migrant workers, suffering families, and tortured landscapes have seared the imagery of the Depression into America’s consciousness. Her most celebrated photographs of that era—Migrant Mother, White Angel Breadline, and Migratory Cotton Picker—have become icons in American cultural history.

Take an up-close tour of this exhibition with Michelle Murdock, director of exhibitions, during Food for Thought on September 24.
