A Contemporary Forum Event that Welcomes Everyone

Over the past thirty years, art photography has experienced an explosion like no other time in the history of the medium. Not only has the number of artists making photographs increased tremendously, but the number of museums exhibiting and collecting photographs has increased dramatically in a relatively short period of time. This lecture will look at these changes and also reflect on the history of the medium to consider if this is a revolution or an evolution.” Jeffrey Hoone

This event is sponsored by Phoenix Art Museum Trustee Joe Lampe and Shawn Lampe.”
