Inspired by the exhibition “Imogen Cunningham: In Focus,” on view through June 18, 2017, revel in the strength and beauty of the work of this major 20th-century American photographer, those who surrounded her, and the legacy she left behind.

Focus on 1920s nudes and botanicals, and later portraits, still lifes, and street photography with the exhibition’s curator; learn from an expert about the famous Group f/64; and explore Cunningham’s unorthodox teaching methods and her influence on her peers as well as succeeding generations of photographers.

Thursdays, February 9–March 2, 7–8:30 pm (no class February 23)
