World War II-Era Pittsburgh Through the Lens of Gordon Parks
Gordon Parks in Pittsburgh, 1944/1946 offers an in-depth presentation of legendary photojournalist Gordon Parks’s photographs of the Penola, Inc. grease plant in Pittsburgh and its workers who supplied essential goods to US troops during World War II. This exhibition showcases works from an important chapter in Parks’s landmark career and features more than 50 photographs that have not yet been seen by the public. These images, nearly 80 years old, foreground a narrative that is seldom told but still resonates today.
