The History of Iconic American Photographs

Thursday, April 6, 2023, 10:30 am

There are many American photographs that have become iconic; images that we recognize and associate with a specific time in our history. Stieglitz’s The Steerage, Lange’s Migrant Mother, and Shaw’s Marilyn Monroe are just a few of several photographs we will examine as we explore the history of images that bring to mind significant events in our lives and in our history. Led by Martha Chiarchiaro, owner of Seeing History, who has brought history to life through the art of the times for more than 30 years. She received her Masters’ degree in the History of Art from Williams College and provides a variety of art history presentations at the Worcester Art Museum, the Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE), libraries, senior centers, and a variety of garden clubs.

Sponsored by the Tewksbury Cultural Council, the Friends of the Tewksbury Public Library, and the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library.
