The Special Collections Research Center will host an after-hours talk on Thursday evening, February 12, from 5:00-7:00 in the gallery. The event will be led by curators for the latest exhibit, “I Step Out of Myself”: Portrait Photography in Special Collections. Remarks begin at 5:30 and light refreshments will be served.
“I Step Out of Myself”: Portrait Photography in Special Collections highlights outstanding examples of fine art and photojournalistic portraiture held in the Special Collections Research Center. Displaying selections rarely on public view, the exhibition draws from the work of a varied group of 20th-century photographers: Eva Watson-Schütuze, Carl Van Vechten, Layle Silbert, Mildred Mead, Yousuf Karsh, Alice Boughton, Joan Eggan, and Tina Modotti.
The Special Collections Research Center Gallery is located within the The University of Chicago Regenstein Library, 1100 East 57th Street, on the first floor.
The Gallery is open Monday-Friday: 9:00 to 4:45 , and, when classes are in session, Saturdays 9:00 to 12:45. The Gallery is closed on Sundays.
