Members Only: Discovery and Exploration: Photographs from the Clark

Tuesday, January 8, 2013
4:00 pm

Join us as we look at photographs inspired by discovery, travel, and exploration. Members will consider the explosion of photographic images during the last half of the nineteenth century—works of art whose production coincided with an unprecedented era of scientific and archaeological discovery and European colonial expansion. A preview of the inaugural exhibition for the future Manton Study Center, Clark Curator Jay A. Clarke will bring out some of the Clark’s treasures from the vault. This event will take place in the Print Room. Members will meet at the library doors.
