Dorothea Lange Exhibit Opens at UA – Pulaski Tech

Few images have worked their way into our cultural psyche like the work of Dorothea Lange. Now, her iconic photographs depicting the dark realities of the Great Depression are coming to central Arkansas.

Opening today, the “Dorothea Lange’s America” photo exhibit will be on display at the Windgate Gallery at UA – Pulaski Technical College through Friday, Dec. 11. The exhibit features oversized prints of her portraits from the Great Depression including “White Angel Breadline,” “Migratory Farm Worker” and, most famously, “Migrant Mother.”

According to Pulaski Tech, “With the crash of 1929, [Lange] found her true calling as a peripatetic chronicler of the many faces of America, old and young, urban and rural, native-born and immigrant, as they dealt with unprecedented hardship, sometimes with resilience, often with despondence.”

Windgate Gallery hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free and open to the public. Face masks are required, social distance measures are in place and gallery capacity is limited to six visitors at a time.
