Art History Talk: Documenting the Dust Bowl:  Dorothea Lange and Marion Post Wolcott

September 26 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, Rebecca’s first five lectures this season will feature the work of women artists, some well-known, others nearly forgotten.  Frida Kahlo has become a feminist icon, but how many people know that the sculptor of Lincoln in the US Capitol was the work of Vinnie (Lavinia) Ream?  Or that women photographers were crisscrossing Depression-era America making photographs of dignity amidst squalor?  A final lecture on Impressionist Gardens will serve to whet our appetite for the annual Vashon Garden Tour.

During the Depression, Dorothea Lange and Marion Post Wolcott formed part of a team of talented photographers dispatched by the Farm Security Administration to record conditions in the rural US.  Lange’s Migrant Mother is the most famous of the extraordinary images they produced for this project.
