RECEPTION: Museum of Art/WSU Exhibit Corbis & Vivian Maier
January 22, 2015 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 pmFree
The Washington State University Museum of Art is proud to present two distinct exhibitions in Through the Lens: An American Century – Corbis & Vivian Maier, which explore the personal and public uses of photography featuring some of the most famous images in history and – with a recent discovery – the most private. The exhibition opens January 12, 2015 and runs through April 3, 2015.
A public reception will be held 6 pm Thursday, Jan. 22, in the Museum of Art/WSU gallery with a talk, “What makes a lasting image”, given by photography professor Dennis DeHart. An additional public reception will be held 6 pm Thursday, Feb. 12, in the Museum of Art/WSU gallery with a talk given by art historian Marianne Kinkel before the documentary screening of the film Finding Vivian Maier at 7 pm in the CUB Auditorium. Admission is free.
This exhibit also features emerging student photographers from across the country. Students use their cameras as a vehicle to create portraits of our nuanced communities while simultaneously posing the question, “What constitutes a lasting and meaningful image?”
