"Mining Pictures: Stories from Above and Below Ground"
The new photo-centered Block Museum of Art exhibit, "Mining Pictures: Stories from Above and Below Ground," explores the visual representation of industrialization and the plight of the common laborer. It was featured in a recent article by the Chicago Tribune. The exhibit was a collaboration between the exhibition curator and 2016-17 Block Museum Graduate Fellow, Talia Shabtay, and Corinne Granof, Curator of Academic Programs at Block. Shabtay is a doctoral student in Art History.
The exhibit will be open through April 2, and there will be a gallery talk at 4 PM on March 7. Read the full article on the exhibit from the Chicago Tribune.
