Art Speaks Lecture with Stacy Pearsall
Stacy Pearsall’s empowering presentation draws upon the hardships she faced as a photographer, and woman, in combat. She’s documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time, has been injured in combat and survived to tell her story. More importantly, she lives to tell others’ stories. Hers is an amazing visual journey of personal and photographic growth. Not only do the images relate the story of the soldiers she’s documented, but also her own tale of friendships she made and tragically lost. You’ll learn how her path to recovery paved the road to her new mission in life, the Veterans Portrait Project and Forging Forward.

Reception: March 26, 5 p.m.
Justin Nolan’s photographs in Stages of Persuasion investigate commercial and themed spaces. His images, shot at locations throughout the country, explore the powerful role that staged spaces can have in influencing human desires. Idealized and explicit notions of nature, beauty, humor, and even fear are presented in many of the themed restaurants, stores, and amusement parks he has photographed. A central focus of his work is how American identity is promoted, memorialized, and transmitted through consumer and ‘themed’ spaces.
Closed Mondays & Sundays; OPEN – Tues, Thurs, Fri: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed: 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturdays: 1-5 p.m.
