About this Event
20 Fine Arts Drive, Morgantown, WV 26506https://artmuseum.wvu.edu
From the Collection of Evan Mirapaul
For nearly the entire history of the medium, violins have appeared in photographs in ways that signify talent, status, geography, and culture – and have often been presented as beautiful objects unto themselves. This exhibition, featuring 250 original photographs, spans a period of more than 175 years from the 1840s to today, and includes examples of nearly every photographic process.
Presented with support from the Brown Fund for the Art Museum of WVU.
