The Bay State: A Multicultural Landscape, Photographs of New Americans
October 6, 2016 at 1:00 pm–3:00 pm
Join artist and writer, Mark Chester, for a guided tour and Q&A session about his work! During this special talk at 1:00PM, Chester will discuss the backstory behind his project “The Bay State: A Multicultural Landscape, Photographs of New Americans.” Chester will greet visitors as they come through Speen Hall Gallery starting at 11:00AM.
More from Mark Chester: For forty years with wanderlust and curiosity I covered the continents photographing cultural landscapes. I’ve come full circle—traveling the world not leaving the state. “The Bay State: A Multicultural Landscape” is a collection of informal, environmental portraits of ethnic diversity in Massachusetts. 300-plus photographs that represent over 180 countries are touring the state; a companion book for donation to schools and libraries will bring awareness to our cultural diversity: subjects of various stations, foreign-born, naturalized U.S. citizens residing in the Commonwealth. Unlike my candid street photography, this is a straightforward approach: individuals looking into the camera, telling stories through expression, place and pose.
Additional gallery hours during ArtWeek are as follows: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM and Friday from 9:00AM – 3:00PM.
