May 21 – August 21, 2016
The subject of the 2013 documentary, Finding Vivian Maier, this artist was an enigma not only in the photographic art community, but also in relation to the world stage. The primary focus in her accidentally discovered 150,000 plus negatives and rolls of undeveloped film, is what she saw on the streets of Chicago where she worked as a nanny in the North Shore area. Her images represent an incredibly poignant glimpse into the lives of ordinary people going about the business of daily life. You won’t want to miss this collection of 50 photographs taken by an obscure but posthumously emerging American photographer.
In addition to the exhibit, the Museum will also host a variety of events including
a lecture series, our popular café event, and a gala fundraiser.
