Exhibitions Chronology: A People’s History of VSW
May 11-June 29, 2019 VSW Gallery
Chronology: A People’s History of VSW is an exhibition celebrating VSW’s 50th Anniversary with over a thousand posters and photographs from VSW’s institutional archives and recently sent by alumni and friends of the Workshop. The exhibition was designed and installed by current workshop students. Chronology is the beginning of an oral history project to document the activities and people who have passed through VSW over the past fifty years.
May 31 there will be a 6pm reception and a 7pm screening of the recently preserved 1972 film About Us made by VSW students and Robert Frank.
June 1 at 12pm there will be panel on Visual Literacy at George Eastman Museum’s Dryden Theater in connection with Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic, the retrospective exhibition of Lyons (1930-2016), founder of VSW.
Support for this exhibition came from Max and Marian Farash Foundation, Joy of Giving Something, and the New York State Council on the Arts Visual Arts program.
