Valdosta State University is holding a community discussion on the Great Depression tonight.
The forum will focus on a photography collection the university's fine arts gallery is hosting from Franklin D. Roosevelt's Presidential Library and Museum.
The collection features iconic photographs taken between 1935 and 1942.
Photographers and professors plan on discussing the history behind the pictures.
"Society needs art, needs to nurture art and needs to see art and I mean if we didn't have these photographs we would know a lot less about the Great Depression," said Julie Bowland, art gallery director.
The panel discussion will kickoff at 7 p.m. in Sawyer Theatre.
The exhibit runs through September 11th.
