In the 1930s, the search for what might be a uniquely American point of view led to an increased interest in art by everyday Americans, what might be called vernacular or “folk art,” as well as to a series of photography initiatives. Curators Elizabeth McGoey and Elizabeth Siegel take you on a tour of this special exhibition, an unexpected combination of photography and early American folk art that is the first of its kind.
Please note: This tour has limited capacity. Participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
