Eudora Welty—Exposures and Reflections
June 5 - July 20, 2012
Eudora Welty has long been recognized as one of the great Southern literary voices of the twentieth century. However, many Americans do not know of her amazing work as a photographer. During her time as a junior publicist for the Works Progress Administration, Welty photographed the effects of the Great Depression on her native South. The exhibit opens in the Fourth Floor Exhibition Gallery at the Central Branch on Tuesday, June 5, and runs through Friday, July 20.
To accompany the exhibit, Museum of Mobile curator of exhibits Jacob Laurence will present a Brown Bag Lunch talk on the exhibition at the Central Branch on Wednesday, June 6, at 12:00 noon in the Richard Arrington, Jr. Auditorium.
Developed in partnership with The Southern Literary Trail and funded by Alabama Humanities Foundation, the exhibit is the first traveling exhibit designed by the Museum of Mobile.
