From Self-Portrait to Selfie: A History of Photography

What's happening?

January 17 is Museum Selfie Day, a worldwide event that encourages visitors to engage with museums by taking and sharing selfies. Join us for a special after-hours tour of our current History of Photography installation, which provides an overview of the medium through self-portraits, as well as images of photographers and their equipment. Learn about the photographs on view from Associate Curator Jamie M. Allen, and then dive into the history of the selfie with Manager of Digital Engagement Kate Meyers Emery. Finally, test your skills at re-creating some of the self-portraits featured in the gallery.

Registration required. Only 20 tickets available!
