Picturing Home: Dust Bowl Migrants in Chandler

March 8, 2022 - Aug. 13, 2023

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 focuses on topics of housing, migration, agriculture, self-sufficiency, and empathy.
