Lunch + Look “Painters vs. Cameras?”

Wednesday, Jul 24, 2013
1 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.

Beck Building
5601 Main Street Map & Directions

The invention of photography in 1839 revolutionized art, and painters had to respond! A camera and a painter can document reality or manipulate images. But how did cameras influence painters, and how did painters affect the use of cameras? Join in the discussion during this lunchtime gallery talk in conjunction with the exhibition Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop.
