Landscapes Rediscovered features rarely seen Depression-era landscape paintings from acclaimed San Diego artists Charles Reiffel, Maurice Braun, and others that feature familiar locations throughout San Diego County like Point Loma, Mt. Cuyamaca, and Mission Hills.

Some of these historically significant works were commissioned by the federal government through the Works Progress Administration to beautify public spaces but have not been seen by the public in decades!
