Seasonal Special Happenings

Webb Based

When: Fri., July 17 2015

In conjunction with her exhibition, My Dakota, currently on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA), photographer Rebecca Norris Webb is coming to the museum to lead a weekend-long photography workshop, as well as a special presentation on her work, with her husband and collaborator Alex Webb. My Dakota explores the New York-based photographer’s home state of South Dakota after returning in 2005. Following the death of one of her brothers in 2006, her work changed, and the series evolved into both a memorial to her brother and an attempt to capture the essence of the people’s effect on the land and the land’s effect on the people. Today through Sunday, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb lead an intensive workshop to help amateur and professional photographers alike. Projects include an editing exercise, a choice between an optional photography editing assignment or long-term project review and visits to the CMA’s galleries; including a guided tour of My Dakota. Registration for Finding Your Vision is $500; $400 for members. Register online or by calling the museum. Following Friday’s workshop, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb present Slant Rhymes a free presentation exploring their collaborative work; as well as Webb’s Aperture monograph and Norris Webb’s third book, My Dakota. My Dakota remains on view at the CMA through Aug. 16. (Usmani)
