SAAM's Second Podcast

Dust Bowl by Alexandre Hogue

Dust Bowl by Alexandre Hogue

Ninety years from now, when America begins to reflect on the past one hundred years, what will our descendants think of the early part of the 21st century? And how will artists define the era?

SAAM's second podcast takes a look back to artworks from the early 20th century; "from scarcity to plenty, from rural to urban," we visit Harlem, the Dust Bowl, and the WPA by looking at four artists work: William H. Johnson, Alexandre Hogue, Grant Wood, and Helene Sardeau.

Curators Eleanor Harvey, Virginia Mecklenburg, and Joann Moser connect these artists' works to the American experience during the 1930s and 1940s.

Be sure to check out our related interactives on the works of William H. Johnson and Grant Wood.

Although this is not about the podcast, I must say that the "Dust Bowl" is a beautiful piece of work.
