Dust, Displacement, and Dignity Restored: New Deal Photographs by Arthur Rothstein

In response to widespread drought and the Dust Bowl, President Franklin Roosevelt created an enormous program of relief and recovery to help America’s dispossessed. This exhibition offers a glimpse of the compelling documentary photo stories Arthur Rothstein created in support of FDR’s rural New Deal programs. These images helped inspire John Steinbeck and gave witness to the real-life events and controversies dramatized in The Grapes of Wrath.

This exhibition is now open in our Arts & Culture Gallery and is included with museum admission.
