  community member   < less

Join us at the Argus Museum on Thursday evening, January 17th, for the opening of PILGRIMAGE: an analogue photography exhibit. The images were created by Wayne State University's Black and White analog photography class who were given a series of projects of specific genres of Portraiture, Document and Landscape steeped in both historical and contemporary references. "Collectively, the photographs presented here are the simulacrum of the talisman, relics and mysteries encountered through their exploration of image making, analog film, camera, and darkroom methodologies."
The Argus Museum is located in the Argus I Building at 525 West Williams Street in Ann Arbor. The exhibit, which hangs through February 14th, is available for public viewing M-F, 9-5.
Argus Museum, Argus I Building, 525 West William Street. Free. Donation. 734-769-0770. cchidester@onealconstruction.com http://washtenawhistory.org [map]
