ONLINE—Focus 45: A History of Photography Commemorating Ratification of the 19th Amendment

Friday, August 14, 2020, 1 p.m., Online

Commemorating the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment’s ratification, which granted American women the right to vote, this presentation examines how photography has portrayed, and fundamentally shaped, perceptions of women and feminist movements since the mid-1800s. Curator Lisa Hostetler will expand on the current selection of photographs in the History of Photography Gallery, which she and Associate Curator Jamie M. Allen co-curated with master’s students in the Photographic Preservation and Collections Management program Rebecca Gourevitch, Forrest Soper, Maya Swann Vitale, and Xiaochun Wang.

Free to all.
