The Rock Hill Pictures, Collection and Showing, Mara Kurtz
Mara Kurtz’s photography will be shown at Winthrop University Gallery in Rock Hill, South Carolina, beginning September 7.
From Winthrop University’s Event Posting:
“…opening Sept. 10 in the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery is “Remnants: A Collection of Rock Hill’s Visual Alterations” by New York designer and photographer, Mara Kurtz. Kurtz photographed Rock Hill in the early 1970s prior to the federally funded “beautification program.” The photographs demonstrate the evolving industrial impact on the community’s urban landscape underscoring the ability buildings, signage and structures have to give meaning to space and establish its identity. A free opening reception for both exhibitions will be from 6:30-8 p.m. Sept. 7.
These photographs and more are also available in Mara Kurtz’s collection, The Rock Hill Pictures.
