Here is the exhibit description:

The first half of the 20th century saw dramatic changes in American life, changes American printmakers variously celebrated, satirized, and condemned. From the soaring skyscrapers of New York City to the rolling fields of Iowa, from the power of modern machinery to the turmoil of labor demonstrations, printmakers captured the excitement and conflicts of modern life. Modern Times: American Graphic Arts, 1900–1950 was organized by students in a Wesleyan University seminar and presents more than 50 prints from the Davison Art Center collection. Artists include Thomas Hart Benton, Martin Lewis, Joseph Pennell, John Sloan, and Grant Wood. The exhibition opens with a gallery talk by Margaret Aldredge, Michelle Brown, Meera Bhardwaj, Peter Lubershane and Cameron Rowland, student curators.
