'Revisiting America: The Prints of Currier & Ives'

When: Through Aug. 29

On loan from the Joslyn Museum in Omaha, Neb., the exhibition explores how the largest printmaking company in 19th-century America visualized the nation’s social, political and industrial fabric. Though known for lushly colored, nostalgic lithographs, the company also touched on social and political issues of the day.
