A Members-Only Curator’s Tour will be held on Friday, May 3, at noon.

From the Great Depression, through the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, to inequity in our criminal justice system in the 1950s, hardship and human suffering are consistent themes in Dorothea Lange’s work. Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing examines these images through the lens of social and political activism. Join Frist Art Museum curator Katie Delmez to take a closer look at these iconic photographs and to learn how Lange sought to spark social reform with her work.
