Steff Chavez ’17, curator of the exhibition, Peter Cohen, collector, and Frank Goodyear, co-director of the Museum of Art, will speak about the exhibition “Where do I go from here? Snapshots of Twentieth-Century Life.”
The exhibition features a selection of American vernacular photographs recently donated to the Museum and explores how amateur photographers circumvented – and at times unsettled – assumptions about what a portrait might be.
Presented by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. Free and open to the public.
