Jason Reblando: New Deal Utopias

Photographer and artist Jason Reblando will give a talk about his recent photography book New Deal Utopias (Kehrer Verlag, 2017), which explores three planned communities built by the U.S. government during the Great Depression. His project explores the built environments and landscapes of Greenbelt, Maryland; Greenhills, Ohio; and Greendale, Wisconsin, collectively known as “Greenbelt Towns,” to evoke utopia both as an idea and a place in the American mind. He will also discuss fascinating historical context of the towns by incorporating archival photographs from the Farm Security Administration.

Jason received his MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago, and a BA in Sociology from Boston College. He is the recipient of a U.S. Fulbright Fellowship to the Philippines, an Artist Fellowship Award from the Illinois Arts Council, and a Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. His work has been published in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico, Camera Austria, Slate, Bloomberg Businessweek, Marketplace, Real Simple, Places Journal, Chicago Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, and the Chicago Reader. His photographs are part of the collections in the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Midwest Photographers Project of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He teaches photography at Illinois State University and Illinois Wesleyan University.

Hope to see you at the meeting Tuesday!
