Our friends over at the Henry Art Gallery are hosting an artist lecture with Suzanne Opton this Friday, February 3rd at 7PM.
Photo Center students get in for FREE with a student ID.
Suzanne will discuss her Soldier and Many Wars photographic series. The Soldier series features young, active-duty soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, whose photographs were presented as billboards in nine American cities from 2008 to 2010. Many Wars presents portraits of veterans from American wars over the past 70 years, most of whom are in treatment for combat trauma.
Suzanne Opton was the recipient of a 2009 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum; Cleveland Museum; Library of Congress; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Fotomuseum Winterthur, Zurich; and the Portland Art Museum, among others. Opton teaches portraiture at the International Center of Photography.
