Group Description

Explore the 1930s through paintings, historical documents, music, and video in this virtual 3-d movie theater. Virginia Mecklenburg, Senior Curator of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, guides your visit.

Best of all, you can create your own documentary here! Choose Smithsonian artworks to illustrate your movie and inspire your own story about the 1930s. Using PrimaryAccess, an online tool developed at the University of Virginia, you can select images, write text, and record narration in the style of a documentary filmmaker. Then submit your movie for inclusion in the virtual theater, where you can make your public debut!
