Thursdays at the Museum: Curator Lecture with Nancy Barr

Join us for a lecture by Nancy Barr on her exhibition Lost & Found: Photographs from the DIA's Collection. Lost & Found is a fascinating look at rediscovered photographs (referred to as “found” photography) rescued from attics, resale shops, online sources and the Detroit Institute of Arts’ archives.

Lost and Found includes photographs from the 1860s to the 1970s by unknown and amateur photographers that provide a glimpse into the city of Detroit, themes associated with the automobile and portraits that immortalize family members and everyday people from all walks of life. Included are images from carnival photo booths, family albums, snapshots and commercial portrait studios. 

Every Thursday at 1 p.m. the Detroit Institute of Arts offers programs for adults 55+. For more information on Thursdays at the Museum, call 313.833.4005.
