Membership Matters: January Sneak Preview

Posted on March 01, 2009 by Kristin Swan

Hood Quarterly, spring/summer 2009

Members at the Investor level and above were invited to an exclusive sneak preview of Focus on Photography: Works from 1950 to Today. Emily Burke, Assistant Curator of Special Projects and organizer of the exhibition, gave the opening lecture and guided attendees on a tour of photographic landscapes, documentaries, and portraits by Walker Evans, Serge Hambourg, William Christenberry, James Nachtwey, Loretta Lux, Sally Mann, Diane Arbus, and Andy Warhol, to name a few. A wine and cheese reception followed in the Kim Gallery, where members socialized, discussed the works in the exhibition, and had a chance to ask the curator questions. The event was an opportunity for us to thank our members for their support of free educational programming and access to the Hood Museum of Art.
