We are surrounded by portraits every day, from family photo albums to our Facebook feeds. They do so much more than capture someone’s appearance (indeed, some don’t even do that). What makes a good portrait, and how have contemporary artists approached this age-old art form? Using the Annie Leibovitz exhibition as our classroom, we’ll explore the recent history of portrait photography, including works by such artists as Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Catherine Opie, and others. No art or art history experience is required. Participants may attend a single session or multiple sessions; each will cover different artists and different aspects of portraiture. Although the class is free, advance registration is requested.
