Zoom Art Bites with Executive Director Sean Ulmer: Carl Van Vechten: Man About Town
Join Executive Director Sean Ulmer as he discusses the recently opened exhibition, Carl Van Vechten: Man About Town. Ulmer will provide an overview of the life and photographic art of this Cedar Rapids native. Van Vechten began his career as a newspaper arts critic, which was then followed by a series of novels. In the 1930s, after being introduced to the 35mm Leica camera, he began to photograph his large circle of famous friends and acquaintances. Van Vechten is best remembered for his photographs documenting many luminaries of the Harlem Renaissance.
