Class Pictures: Photographs by Dawoud Bey

Come to the Indianapolis Museum of Art at 6:30 p.m. 25 September for an Artist Talk & Exhibition Opening Party of "Class Pictures: Photographs by Dawoud Bey".

The exhibition includes 40 photographic portraits of high school students paired with their own written words. For the exhibition, Bey photographed young people from all parts of the economic, racial and ethnic spectrum in both public and private high schools across the country. The statements displayed alongside the portraits are touching, funny or harrowing, deepening our appreciation for young adults facing the challenges of the 21st century.

The artist will discuss his work with IMA Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Lisa Freiman at 6:30 p.m. Then, from 8-10 p.m. comes the opening party.

Admission to the opening party is $10 ($5 for students -- IMA members pay nada). Purchase tickets online or call 317:920-2651.
