Group Chat: Let's Celebrate! Everyday Photographs from the Before Times

Remember celebrating together? Taking cheeky photos with friends and awkward photographs with family to commemorate personal milestones is a significant part of how we gather. Join curator Jennifer Friess for a virtual tour (unironically, from her home via Zoom) of twentieth-century amateur photographs picturing parties, gatherings, and celebrations from UMMA’s collection. We will explore the special moments that bring us together and the role of photography in making memories.

This is one of five themed tours offered as part of UMMA + Chill during the month of February. Each theme will be accompanied by a customized beverage suggestion created by local mixologists.
