Focus 45: Kodak Picture Spots and the Perfect Picture

Saturday, August 27, 2016, 12 p.m., Multipurpose Hall

At this special Focus 45 talk coinciding with the exhibition Photography and America's National Parks, Leslie K. Brown will give a historical and cultural overview of Kodak Picture Spots—the signs placed into the landscape that highlight particular subjects to photograph—moving from their earliest appearances as roadside markers in the 1920s to their installations within several national parks, world's fairs, and Disney theme parks. These Kodak signs help to promote picture-taking behaviors throughout much of the past century.

Free to members; included with museum admission. Talk only: $6 general, $3 students.
