Visit the Newberry Library's latest exhibition to explore the question, "What is the Midwest?". Often called "the Heartland" or "flyover country," the Midwest tends to be characterized as a homogeneous, barren space between the American coasts. This exhibition challenges the assumptions, stereotypes, and persistent narratives about the Midwest, exploring the confluence of peoples, places, and environmental conditions that have defined the region and made it unique.
