The Village Community Associates invite you to a lecture by Annie Morse, senior lecturer, Museum Education, spanning images from the earliest years of photography to the 21st century. Complimentary coffee will be available prior to the lecture at 9:30 a.m.

The Art Institute created one of the first independent curatorial departments for photography in the United States. Following the example of groundbreaking photographer and publisher Alfred Stieglitz in the early 20th century, curators sought to establish a better popular understanding of photography as an art form, with exhibitions that introduced American audiences to European, Asian, and American giants in the field.
