Summary "A vision unfolds" establishes the social and economic climate of the 1930s & 1940s, introducing key players and tracing the emergence of California scene painting from earlier styles of art. "Visions of a changing land" examines the influences on regionalist art in California during the depression era, demonstrating the stylistic diversity that emerged in southern and northern California. The video also illustrates the key role played by these artists in broadening the vocabulary of American scene painting. "Visions of social change" examines "Social realism," the impact of Mexican muralists on California artists, public art of the New Deal, the cross-over from fine art to popular art in the Hollywood film industry, and the changing role of the artist in society during a time of national crisis.
