Organized by Omaha’s Joslyn Art Museum and now on view at the Florence Griswold Museum, the touring exhibition “Revisiting America: The Prints of Currier & Ives” reminds visitors of this publishing firm’s huge influence on American visual culture.

Its still-familiar prints perpetuated Victorian ideals of family, history, and politics, and today serve as records of this country as it transformed from rural and agricultural to industrialized and urbanized.
