Evans visited WV in 1935, documenting the effects of the Great Depression on Morgantown and the nearby mining community of Scotts Run and is today considered on of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

Included in this reimagined exhibition are 60 photographs that portray American society through images of its individuals and social contexts along with photographs of Main streets, factory towns and other American cultural artifacts.
