In Conversation: Finding Memories in Found Photographs

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Click here to register

Help build our collection of “ordinary” American 20th-century photographs by joining Assistant Curator of Photography, Jennifer M. Friess, for an interactive tour in the new ArtGym gallery.  We will discuss the significance of “everyday” photographs, the sometimes unknowable stories of these historic images, and what the photographs might contribute to UMMA’s permanent collection for future audiences. Visit the gallery, reflect on our long history of photographing ourselves and our experiences, and then cast your vote for your favorites! 

Support for this exhibition is provided by Cecilia and Mark Vonderheide and the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Department of Film, Television, and Media, and Department of American Culture.
