Guided Tour: "Family Portrait" at Phila Museum of Art with curator Amanda Bock

CCC will hold a very special event featuring a guided tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's current photography exhibit, "Family Portrait" featuring co-curator Amanda Bock.

"Family Portrait" examines the many ways photographers picture family, from amateurs who document their own households, to progressive reformers who make views of domestic life to encourage social change, to artists who explore the deeply personal and often private nature of familial relationships.

(Nick Waplington, "Untitled" from Living Room)

Photographers represented include Gertrude Käsebier, Alice Austin, Robert S. Redfield,  Lewis Hine, Margaret Bourke-White, Arthur Rothstein, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, Emmet Gowin, Sally Mann, Nicholas Nixon, Diane Arbus, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Klein, and Paul Strand.  

Ms. Bock will conduct a private tour of the photographs for us and then join us for brunch at a nearby restaurant, where we can share our own family portraits and tell their stories.

Everyone should meet at the Perelman building, not the main museum building. We will gather in the lobby for our tour. 

The National Brain Tumor Society will be having a walk on the Parkway, so you may face a detour or two, but parking should be available in the neighborhood nearby or in the lot across from Jack's at 22nd and Fairmount. Bill's mobile phone number is[masked]-2378.

Please bring your own family pictures and portraits to share at brunch. You will not be allowed to bring artwork into the museum, so check them at the door or leave them in your car.
