New Photography Exhibit At SCCC/ATS Library

KSCB News - March 1, 2010 12:00 am

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library is proud

to present the traveling exhibit Capturing the Times: Photographs of the

Farm Security Administration, 1936-1941

Historic photos taken between 1936 and 1941 by a group of photographers

working for the U.S. Farm Security Administration capture the essence of the

nation as it worked toward recovering from the Great Depression.

These photographs have played a significant role in defining the nature of

documentary photography and received critical acclaim for their emotionally

powerful images of everyday life in extreme social, economical, and

environmental conditions.

The images in this exhibit are an important part of the natio s visual

memory during this time. Included are Dust Bowl scenes, portraits of

rehabilitation clients, images of striking miners, farm actions, and 4-H

club fairs in their depiction of life in Kansas.

The exhibit is open to the public throughout March. Library hours are 7:45

a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 7:45 a.m.-4:45 p.m., Friday; and 1-9 p.m.,

Sunday.

For more information, contact the SCCC/ATS Library at 620-417-1160.
