This Thursday!

Mary Beth Meehan has spent the last decade making public art that reflects the communities she works in, beginning with her portfolio entitled “City of Champions,” which launched in her hometown of Brockton, Mass, in 2011, and was exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in 2013.

In this talk, she will show her public installation projects and
will discuss what she’s learned: about collaborating with communities, about the power of photography to jolt people

December 3, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

into considering one another, and about the process and problematics of trying to represent others.
At this very important moment, in which white photographers are being called upon to examine their practice of working in diverse communities, she hopes for this to be an evening of conversation with the Griffin community, rather than a one-way lecture.
