Starring Springfield Exhibit Opening
July 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join the Springfield Art Association and Sangamon Valley Collection (Lincoln Library) for a summer exhibit reception!
“Starring Springfield: Through the Eyes of John Starr Stewart” shows a personal view of Springfield from the turn of the 20th century. Stewart traveled around Springfield taking photographs of places, people, and events that caught his eye. He later combined them into a scrapbook, printing the photos using the cyanotype process. This is the first time the photos will be blown up to be viewed on exhibit since their donation to the Sangamon Valley Collection at Lincoln Library in 2006.
This exhibit is curated by Curtis Mann, Stephanie Martin, and Sarah Adams.
