Marion Post Wolcott, "Man entering theater by “Colored” entrance," 1939, gelatin silver print, 11 x 14 inches

Alongside historical images by the renowned Farm Security Administration photographer Marion Post Wolcott, who captured the geometry of farmland, small towns, kitsch motels, and country roads in the 1940s, you'll see photorealist architectural paintings by contemporary Terry Leness. Leness's sunny colors vs. Wolcott's somber black-and-white notwithstanding, the juxtaposition evokes a feeling of eternal wandering among melancholy, unpeopled landscapes. We are looking at the same world from two different periods—but we're lost somewhere between the deprivation and segregation of the Roosevelt era and our own gaudy times.
