Lewis Hine: The Rise of a Landmark
(September 12 – November 26, 2013)
Photographer Lewis Wickes Hine (1874-1940) documented the construction of the monumental Empire State Building at every stage, from its inception in the bedrock to its spectacular appearance on the Manhattan skyline. The photographs that emerged from Hine’s yearlong project do more than glorify the magnificent building, however. They speak to the integrity and courage of the workers who constructed it. Dovetailing with Fairfield University’s campus-wide focus on Cities, this exhibition of photographs explores the human condition in early 20th-century urban America through 51 engaging photographs
Free and open to the public, Tuesday- Saturday 11am to 5pm.
