Artists and documentary photographers have recorded the people and lands of small-town Missouri throughout the twentieth century. While photographers consistently bring the subject into sharp focus, their approaches vary as do the styles adopted by painters. By bringing images from these dissociated realms together, this exhibition explores the differing visions of the ever changing and sometimes vanishing reality of the Missouri heartland.
