Edward Steichen: In Exaltation of Flowers

September 20, 2019 - January 17, 2020

Get a double dose of art through this special joint-tour of the OMA and the Mennello Museum of American Art. Students will visit both institutions to experience the work of this twentieth-century master artist. Edward Steichen’s stunning black and white photographs are portraits of important luminaries of his day: actors, writers, dancers, and singers. His largescale gold-leaf mural painting tells the story of his friends and their symbolic floral counterparts. This tour will introduce students to early photographic techniques, inspire discussion of Steichen’s circle of creatives and muses, and prompt comparisons between painting and photography. Accommodates two classes.
