Photography as Artifact and Artifice, a Discussion with Ben Gest

Sunday, February 25, 2018, 3 pm to 4 pm

Free for members or with Museum admission
Registration encouraged

Join exhibiting artist and internationally renowned photographer Ben Gest for a fascinating discussion on the nature and practice of photography and the complicated, and often times subliminal, role of the photographer. Gest will walk visitors through Shared Space: A New Era, and the Museum’s camera obscura, and lead a conversation exploring the ways photographs not only act as documents of the subjects they present, but also as records of the photographers’ personal experiences and the broader socio-cultural climate.

Members, please join us at 2:30 pm for a special pre-program conversation with Ben Gest. For more information, or to RSVP, contact Kris Honeycutt at
