DESCRIPTION

Hobos to Street People: Artists’ Responses to Homelessness from the New Deal to the Present, is an exhibition exploring the parallels between the Great Depression and contemporary homelessness. Artists from both eras created work to address issues of poverty and homelessness. Parallels and contrasts are brought to light by the comparison of these two eras.

In February 2009 the exhibition began its three year tour of museums, libraries and universities around the state of California at the California Historical Society.
