NEBRASKA: Solomon Butcher – The MONA Collection

Exhibition Website

Jul 28 2017 - Feb 11 2018

Solomon Butcher (1856-1927) was one of those migrating to Nebraska with dreams of a new and prosperous life under the Homestead Act. Quickly realizing he was not suited to work the land, he was inspired by those who did, and had a vision to create the settlement of the plains in a photographic history. Perhaps best known for his distinctive sod house images, Butcher’s photographs are regarded as the most important record of homesteading in America.
