Upcoming Dates For This Event:

Drawn from a private collection, Work and Society in the 1930s showcases approximately sixty paintings and photographs portraying working Americans, who experienced and implemented radical changes in the United States during the 1930s.

“The art of the 1930s was generally quite political and very often made a social statement,” collector Daniel Shogren said.  Both history majors during their college careers, Shogren and his wife and fellow collector, Susan Meyer, share a fascination with the 1930s, which is reflected in their art collection.  The Shogren-Meyer collection draws and combines interests in history and art, which the collectors feel records, reflects, and predicts history.
