Dargis’s 1951 arrival in Rochester and interest in his work on the part of MAG’s director, Gertrude Herdle Moore, and her sister, curator Isabel Herdle, prompted an exhibition of Lithuanian artists and culture. This exhibition was part of the ongoing Homelands series, begun at MAG in 1919, to highlight the cultural inheritance of various national groups represented in the Rochester population. Accompanying the exhibition was a performance of Lithuanian music and dance, for which Dargis designed this program cover. A solo exhibition of Dargis’s work accompanied the show.
