Behind the Scenes: Curator Talk – Streetscapes and Subways: Photographs by Pierre P. and Granville W. Pullis

May 19, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$10/ Free for Members

Ever wonder how curators select images for photography exhibitions? Curious to learn more about the Pullis brothers themselves?

If so, join Associate Curator Jodi Shapiro for a special behind the scenes curator talk on Streetscapes & Subways: Photographs by Pierre P. and Granville W. Pullis , an exhibition that provides a rare view of the last days of “old New York” through the lenses of two of the earliest photographers of subway construction. Together, we will take a deep dive into the image selection process, learn fun facts about the Pullis brothers and additional details about their unique photographic process that ultimately revealed the architectural and cultural details of a city that would otherwise be long forgotten.


Limited spots available! RSVP NOW!
