Bound for GLory" Exhibition Extended to Jan. 21
WASHINGTON, DC.-“Bound for Glory: America in Color, 1939-1943,” a Library of Congress exhibition originally scheduled to close on Nov. 26, has been extended to Jan. 21. The exhibition is on view in the South Gallery of the Great Hall of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C.

Featuring 70 digital prints made from color transparencies taken between 1939 and 1943 by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information (FSA/OWI), these vivid full-color portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small-town populations and the nation’s patriotic response to mobilization for World War II. The photographs in “Bound for Glory,” many by famed photographers such as John Vachon, Jack Delano, Russell Lee and Marion Post Wolcott, document not only the subjects in the pictures, but also the dawn the Kodachrome era.

To coincide with the exhibition, a presentation of these selected images is accessible on the Library’s Web site at www.loc.gov/exhibits/boundforglory. The complete collection of FSA/OWI photographs—171,000 black-and-white images and 1,602 color images—is available on the Library’s Web site at http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/fsowhome.html.
