The student-curated exhibition was inspired, in part, by Reynolda House’s major fall exhibition opening Sept. 14, “Dorothea Lange’s America,” which presents Lange’s haunting photographs of 1930s and 1940s America and features some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. O’Neill challenged her students to explore the ideas that would be presented in “Dorothea Lange’s America” and make connections to photographs in the Student Union Collection of Contemporary Art.
