Event description

Description

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Pedro Guerrero’s birth, join us for a special screening of Pedro E. Guerrero: Portrait of an Image Maker, a production of Gnosis,Ltd. Photographs selected from Guerrero’s 60-year historical archive illustrate the story of a man who came from humble beginnings but went on to photograph the work of celebrated artists Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder, and Louis Nevelson.

Opening remarks will be provided by Dr. Emily Bills, Participating Adjunct Professor and Coordinator of the Urban Studies Program at Woodbury University. Dr. Bills will situate Guerrero's work into a broader history of architectural photography in the United States, and discuss the recent organization and reassessment of the Guerrero archive as part of an increasing interest in his legacy.

While at Monona Terrace, also be sure to visit “The Wright Picture,” a unique exhibition of Guerrero photographs taken during the last 20 years of Frank Lloyd Wright´s life.
