Picturing Home: Dust Bowl Migrants in Chandler

Picturing Home: Dust Bowl Migrants in Chandler

EVENT DETAILS

In the late 1930s Chandler had an influx of Dust Bowl migrants who fled their homes in search of a better life. Government photographers Dorothea Lange and Russell Lee documented unique stories showing these migrants and their dwellings, which were often temporary. This exhibition is a history of Dust Bowl Chandler through unique black and white photographs. It examines what home looked like and makes connections between 1930s Chandler and Chandler today. It includes themes of housing, migration, agriculture, technology, self-sufficiency, and empathy. Image credit: Dorothea Lange, 1940, National Archive and Records Administration, 522527
