Greetings Art Educators,

This Library of Congress exhibit was recommended in the Scout Report.

Bound for Glory: America in Color, 1939-1943
http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/boundforglory/

"Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of
the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm
Security Administration/Office of War Information. These vivid scenes
and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America's rural
and small town populations, the nation's subsequent economic recovery
and industrial growth, and the country's great mobilization for World
War II." (copied from the site).

I see some possibilities for some interdisciplinary planning (social
studies - language arts - art/photography). Look at the stories these
photographs tell. Pass this lik on.

Regards,

Judy Decker
