DESCRIPTION

Edward Hopper House Art Center will host an exhibition of original prints by legendary photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) in the summer of 2013.   Lange’s iconic portraits of Depression-era subjects gave a human face to that troubled period and influenced the development of documentary photography as a whole.   One of Lange’s most famous works, Migrant Mother (right), stands as a symbol of pride and resilience in the face of abject poverty.  

The exhibit is organized by Art2Art and will comprise 30 original photographs on loan from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg.

Funding for this exhibition has been provided by First Niagara Bank, with additional support from Eileen Fisher and individual donors.
