In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we examine a 150-year-old immersive painting at the Atlanta History Museum that features a scheming promoter, the cast of Gone With the Wind, Atlanta’s first Black mayor, and the voice of Darth Vader himself. It shows how our interpretations of art reflect the time in which we live. This episode is produced in partnership with Discover Atlanta.
