The second session of Picturing Me is dedicated to visiting Carnegie Museum of Art! Students view both of our current photography exhibitions, Picturing the City: Downtown Pittsburgh, 2007–2010 and Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story. During this visit, students meet one of the Picturing the City photographers for a discussion and Q&A right in the galleries.
Take a look at this video clip below to see photographer Kenneth Neely talking with the Calvary-Lincoln After School Program about one of his photos, Passed By. The group first viewed photographs by Charles “Teenie” Harris from the 1930s–1970s, and then viewed photographs in Picturing the City from 2007–2010.
