The Taft Museum of Art will augment its Picturing the West exhibit with two lecture and discussion programs. Each will provide an in-depth perspective of 19th century photographic equipment and the impact this form of expression had on the history of the American West. Both programs are designed to engage participants through historical and interpretive content.
There is no cost to attend either Ohio Humanities supported event.
Oct. 15 | A Dialogue About the 19th Century Photography Concepts, 2:30-3:30 p.m. | The discussion will be led by Tracy Longley-Cook, an assistant professor of Art History with Wright State University.
Nov. 17 | Visions of the West, 7-8:30 p.m. | The discussion will be led by Wes Cowan. He stars in the PBS television series “History Detectives” and “Antiques Roadshow.”
