In the 1970s, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) conceived a series of photo survey projects, inspired by the epic documentary photography program undertaken by the federal government in the 1930s and 1940s. The installation of 63 vintage prints from this survey of 120 photographs, are all works from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's permanent collection. Feb 26-July 31.
