  • COVID-19 Update--Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed the Museum to the public through at least April 30, and have cancel all programs during this time. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon (and often!), but until then, we encourage you to visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to stay up-to-date about the Museum’s status and enjoy beautiful images, on-line exhibitions, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes videos. Should you need a staff member, call or email them as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends

Lecture: Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures

Please note: This event has been canceled. All ticket holders will be contacted for refund information. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sarah Hermanson Meister, Curator, Department of Photography, The Museum of Modern Art

Join Meister as she considers iconic work by American master photographer Dorothea Lange such as Migrant Mother together with rarely seen images–from early street photographs to projects examining the criminal justice system. Lange’s acclaimed career is reconsidered in the context of words historically associated with her pictures: poems, books, and illustrated magazines.
