Book Signing: Photographer Art Shay

May 2, 2015
Gallery 10
Free with museum admission

Art Shay is one of Chicago’s great photojournalists. With more than 25,000 published photographs—including more than 1,000 magazine covers—he has shaped the way we see the world on the printed page. For seven decades, Shay’s camera has documented the famous and the downtrodden, the international and the local, the newsworthy and the intimate. A new installation in Gallery 10 celebrates Art Shay and his recent generous gift to the Art Institute of Chicago of photographs from across his career. Please join us and meet the artist.
