In a way similar to how the Internet has changed the current political
landscape, improved technology had a political impact in the last
century, an impact Shout Freedom! documents.
Members of the Photo League included Berenice Abbott, Lewis Hine, Lisette Model, Aaron Siskind, W. Eugene Smith, Paul Strand, and Weegee—some of the most important American artists of the twentieth century. That the Shout Freedom! exhibition is being shown at this time is opportune."The museum's first full year of operation was 1936," says Director Peter Blume. "As we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we were looking for projects reflective of that time period, and this collection of photographs was made to order."
Shout Freedom! is organized by the Columbus Museum of Art and Arts Midwest. The national tour of this exhibition has been made possible through American Masterpieces support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Exhibition Date: September 17, 2010 - December 5, 2010
