Indepth Arts News:

"The Art of Humane Propaganda"
2001-05-05 until 2001-09-02
Columbus Museum of Art
Columbus, OH, USA United States of America

The objective of the Farm Security Administrations (FSA) photographic project was to make the public aware of the deplorable conditions imposed by the Great Depression on rural areas and to support progressive agricultural programs of the Roosevelt administration. The works produced for the FSA by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Russell Lee, among other equally notable photographers, established the visual record of the late 1930s in America.

This exhibition brings together 44 vintage prints, on loan from the Ohio State University, together with earlier examples by American social documentary photographer Lewis Hine. Hines work, on loan from the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, serves as a pre-history to the iconic images of the FSA.
