NEW: Worcester Art Museum to Host Former White House Chief Photographer

Friday, November 09, 2012

 

"Nixon Leaving the White House" is one of Kennerly's most famous pieces.

This Sunday, the Worcester Art Museum will welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Hume Kennerly to discuss his work photographing the Ford Administration, and others.

The former White House Chief Photographer will share behind the scenes stories about his work from the 1960's, some of which is currently on display in the museum's newest exhibition, Kennedy to Kent State: Images of a Generation.

“We are honored that David has accepted our invitation to speak about his unique experiences as a photographer and to provide guests with a perspective unlike any other,” said Katrina Stacy, Assistant Curator of Education at the museum. “Hearing the stories behind each of his photographs in Kennedy to Kent State will surely add a new depth and understanding to the era and subjects he was capturing.”

Kennerly's "Lone Solider, A Shau Valley," taken in Vietnam in 1971 will be on display, and is arguably one of the most fame apolitical photos of all time. His photo of former President Richard Nixon waving to the White House immediately following his resignation, pictured and entitled "Nixon Leaving the White House," is also on display.

This lecture is sponsored by MassHumanities and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and will take place from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 11, in the Worcester Art Museum conference room.
 
This event is free to the public; however, pre-registration is strongly recommended. In addition, the Worcester Art Museum will waive admission fees for veterans, in honor of Veterans Day. For more information or to reserve a seat, call (508) 793-4333 or click here.
