The Dust Bowl

April 1, 2014April 30, 2014

The Dust Bowl.  In the 1930s, photographers working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) captured unforgettable images of human fortitude and despair in the face of calamity. Nebraska photographer Bill Ganzel set out in the late 1970s to find and re-photograph Dust Bowl survivors for a book and exhibition. This Humanities Texas traveling exhibition combines the FSA photographs and Ganzel’s interviews to create an eloquent story of human fortitude.

The exhibition is supported by a grant from Humanities Texas an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
