May Arts Events

Looking for something to do besides study or grade exams? Take a break and attend some of the visual and performing arts events happening this month.

Continuing through May 31
The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents "100 Years of Camera Work." Camera Work, the great quarterly journal dedicated to photography, criticism, and modernist art, is the central focus of the exhibition "100 Years of Camera Work." Published between 1903 and 1917 by Alfred Stieglitz, the journal was one of the stellar achievements of 20th century American culture, and contributed greatly to establishing photography as a high art. "100 Years of Camera Work" celebrates the impact that the journal had by exhibiting UMBC's entire holding in a very rare public display of an exceedingly rare publication. In recognition of the powerful influence that Camera Work had upon the development of Modernism in photography, 20th century art photographs made following 1917 have been selected from UMBC's Photography Collections to complement the exhibition.

The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 12 noon to 4:30 pm, on Thursday until 8 pm, and Saturday 1 - 5 pm. Admission is free. Read a Insights feature on the exhibition here. For more information call (410) 455-2270 or visit the online press release.
