'Dorothea Lange’s America'

Dates: through August 18, 2013

Edward Hopper House Art Center hosts an exhibition of original prints by legendary photographer Dorothea Lange (1895–1965).   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, stands as a symbol of pride and resilience in the face of abject poverty.  

The exhibit is organized by Art2Art Circulating Exhibits  and will comprise 30 original photographs on loan from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. Funding was provided by First Niagara Bank, Corporate Sponsor; Eileen Fisher, Exhibition Sponsor; Barbara Hertz Friedmann, Exhibition Sponsor; Orange & Rockland, Education Sponsor; and Jo & Peter Baer; Victoria Hertz & Rod Greenwood; Adam & Denise Lipson; Donna & Don Riley; Kate Whitney & Franklin Thomas.
