Mark Steinmetz: Photo Class & Public Lecture

February 22nd, 2018

There are two upcoming events with Mark Steinmetz at the High Museum of Art; a public lecture on March 18, and a photoclass (for adults) on March 24-25: "Deepening Your Practice: Adult Photography Class with Mark Steinmetz."

"Join Mark Steinmetz, a leading Southern artist whose photographs capture the distinctive character of the region, as he shares insights on the exhibition Mark Steinmetz: Terminus, at the High (March 3–June 3) photographs in, around, and above Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. His black-and-white photographs lend a poignant perspective on how this gateway to the wider world is a place of delightful paradoxes. Mark Steinmetz: Terminus is the latest chapter in the ongoing Picturing the South project, for which the High Museum commissions artists to create original bodies of work that offer new perspectives on the South’s social and geographical landscapes."
