The Great Wide Open: Panoramic Photographs and the American West
Symposium at the Huntington Library, San Marino, California
Saturday, July 14, 2001, 9AM – 5PM
This public symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition The Great Wide Open: Panoramic Photographs of the American West at the Huntington’s Boone Gallery (June 14 to September 9, 2001). The one-day event centers on the art of the panoramic photograph as it relates to notions of regionalism and the representation of Western spaces, past and present. Curators Jennifer Watts and Claudia Bohn-Spector are convening the symposium. Two prominent scholars of the West, Richard White, Byrne Professor of History at Stanford University, and art historian Martha A. Sandweiss from Amherst College will join artists Robert Dawson, Gus Foster, Karen Halverson, and Skeet McAuley to explore the various themes of the exhibition. Registration is $10.00 (students free). Optional lunches are available at an additional cost.
