"From a Cloud of Dust," Art Exhibition - Prescott

In the novel “The Grapes of Wrath,” the effect of the seven-year-long drought on the land is explicit. Unsustainable farming practices impacted families across the country from the dust bowl of Oklahoma and Texas to the cut-over farms of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Images from the era depict the stark reality of broken land, human migration and the struggle for survival.

Photographs from the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information collection at the Library of Congress will be on
