Docent Art Talks: How Photography Became Art

February 23 at 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Alfred Stieglitz, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks created iconic images that endure as fine art. But in the early 20th century, photography faced a very hostile environment in the art world. We’ll look at how the artist-photographers won acceptance, with a focus on works in the TMA collection, and the role of women and people of color.

Art Talks take place every Wednesday from January through April at 1:30 p.m. They are presented by members of the TMALearn! Docent Council.

For the health and safety of all event/program attendees, proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test result, from within 72 hours of the event/program start time, will be required upon arrival. If you are unable to provide either, you will not be able to attend the event/program.
