Upcoming Events and Programs

Virtual Gallery Talk

"Both Sides of the Lens: Portrait Photography"
September 22, Wednesday, 12:30–1:15 pm

John R. Stomberg, Virginia Rice Kelsey 1961s Director, Hood Museum of Art
This is a talk about names and faces—in that order. The portraits collected by Raph and Jane Bernstein that comprise the current photography exhibition represent meritorious artists on both sides of lens. The photographers include famous practitioners from Matthew Brady (American, 1823–1896) to Annie Liebovitz (American, born 1949). Their subjects have in common that they all earned their fame for intellectual, artistic, or literary work, including Anaïs Nin and Albert Camus, Henri Matisse and Frida Kahlo, and Edgar Allen Poe and Alice Walker. This talk will consider the special balance of creative power required between a portraitist and their subject. Click here to register.
