Visionary Photography. Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, September 15, 2009–January 3, 2010.
Organized in collaboration with UNL's College of Journalism and Mass Communications, this exhibition consisted of artworks from the Sheldon Museum of Art’s permanent collection. It highlighted photography that spanned more than 80 years and documented three universal themes: war, poverty, and the right to assemble. Included were WPA artist Dorothea Lange’s Depression-era photographs, Kenneth Jarecke’s Gulf War scenes, and Vietnam War photography by Larry Burrows.
I worked closely with Visionary Photography’s curator Ed Rumbaugh to conduct collections research, develop content for the exhibition’s marketing and interpretive materials, and assist with the organization and installation of all works on display.
