ARMONK, N.Y. -- The North Castle Public Library's "Summer Armchair Art Series" next will feature the Edward Hopper House Art Center's Dorothea Lange's America.
The free exhibit will be at 7 p.m., Aug. 14, in the library's magazine/media room, 19 Whippoorwill Road East, Armonk.
At the event, professor Valerie Franco examines some of the important works and portraits on the Great Depression by Lange, a renowned documentary photographer. She will look at the works and discuss the political and social climate during the time when Lange was at her creative apex.
