Eudora Welty: Twenty Photographs
A Selection of Photographs from the Knoxville Museum of Art Collection
February 17 – March 9, 2018
The MTSU Department of Art and Design is proud to announce an exhibition of Eugenia Welty Photography that currently on display through March 9, 2018 at Todd Art Gallery, Todd Hall, room 224A.
Eudora Welty was an American writer and photographer whose main focus was on the American South. Born in 1909, Welty grew up in Mississippi and went on to become a teacher, writer, and photographer.
These works represent some of Welty’s most striking Depression-era images. She took the photographs during her assignment with the Mississippi Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the 1930s. The Collection showcases the pervasive poverty of the South and economically disenfranchised persons of color and poor whites.
The exhibition is free and open to all ages of the public. Gallery hours: Monday-Friday 8:30 am–4:30 pm and Saturday 11:00 am–4:00 pm.
