> DESCRIPTION

Eyes of a Nation, drawn from MOPA’s permanent collection, is a look at the rich history of American photography by artists working in the 1870s-1970s. Eyes of a Nation explores the groundbreaking movements and photographers who helped shape photography at an important time in the development of our country.

The exhibition presents an important story of American photography focused on social reform, artistic expression, and the dramatic political and cultural changes experienced during that time. Eyes of a Nation explores the aesthetic growth of photography as it developed into an art form, while presenting the unique power of the medium to document and inform visitors with compelling images.
