In Pursuit of Pleasure

October 14th, 2005 – February 5th, 2006

This exhibition depicts the leisure activities and simple pleasures of life that were enjoyed by Americans during the Great Depression. Among the illustrated activities are tranquil visits to the beach and exciting afternoons at the county fair, which served as welcome distractions from the trying times following the Crash of 1929. Featured artists in this exhibition include Maxine Albro, Charles Burchfield, and Philip Evergood.
