NEBRASKA: Wright Morris – The MONA Collection

Exhibition Website

Aug 22 2017 - Feb 25 2018

Nebraska native son Wright Morris (1910-1998) is represented at MONA with 131 black and white photographs, likely the largest collection in a public institution. During a cross-country car trip in 1938, he became enthralled with the visual beauty of the Nebraska landscape and rural life that he remembered from his youth. He bought a camera and began to document the mid-century structures and artifacts of rural America.
