SNAPSHOTS: 15 Takes on an Exhibition

May 6 – 18, 2014
Koppelman Gallery

In May, students in the Tufts Graduate Program in Museum Studies Exhibition Planning Course will use late nineteenth and early twentieth century photographs of coastal New England to open SNAPSHOTS: 15 Takes on an Exhibition. This show will present several interpretive strategies to examine the art and work of such artists as Nathaniel L. Stebbins, Henry G. Peabody, Baldwin Coolidge, Emma L. Coleman, and Fred Quimby. These pioneering photographers documented years of great social and economic change through a close look at life along the coast from fishermen's shacks to summer hotels. Captured in these images is a glimpse into that past.
