Dox Thrash at the Art Institute of Chicago

They Seek a City is the Art Institute of Chicago’s first exhibition to focus on the art produced by the diverse communities that migrated to Chicago in waves during the first half of the 20th Century. Highlighting this diverse yet interwoven artistic production, They Seek a City includes paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculpture, and decorative arts.  Included is an impression of Dox Thrash’s Georgia Cotton Crop, c. 1944-45 (Ittmann 114).  We have a very beautiful, richly inked impression of Georgia Cotton Crop.  It is part of a fairly large body of work where Thrash responds to the rural life he left and the landscape of Georgia.  They Seek a City is on view at the Art Institute of Chicago through June 2, 2013.
