Join us for a spotlight tour of Alec Soth hosted by Chief Curator Greer Pagano. 

Alec Soth has spent his career photographing the peculiarities of life. Many of his most famous works stem from road trips where his motivation has been the meander through rural and suburban places and the capture of everyday life. He has photographed brides at Niagara Falls, hermits living off the grid in Arkansas, kids dancing at prom in Cleveland, and people he met on drives following the course of the Mississippi River.  His works are stark and clear images that confront the medium of photography and consciously consider the ways it can tell stories, provoke reactions, and document contemporary realities.

The tour is included with general admission and is free to members, students, and children.
