Art for the Millions: American Culture and Politics in the 1930s

Hosted By: The Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art

The 1930s was a decade of political and social upheaval in the United States, and the art and visual culture of the time reflected the unsettled environment. Americans searched for their cultural identity during the Great Depression, a period marked by divisive politics, threats to democracy, and intensified social activism, including a powerful labor movement. Lecture by exhibition curator Allison Rudnick, Associate Curator in the department of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit is on view at The Met through December 10th, 2023.
This event is organized by The Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, New York.
