Gallery Talk on the Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip
For the past year, Dr. Jerry N. Smith has served as the Hazel and William Hough Chief Curator and Interim Executive Director. He was previously Curator of
American and European Art to 1950 and Art of the American West at the Phoenix Art Museum. He holds his BA and MA from Arizona State University and his
PhD from the University of Kansas, all in art history.
Robin O’Dell returned to the MFA in 2014 after earning her MA in photographic preservation and collections management in the joint program offered by Ryerson University in Toronto and the Eastman House Museum. She recently curated Harold Edgerton: What the Eye Can’t See and selected the images in the Miriam F. Acheson Gallery, now dedicated to examples from the MFA’s outstanding photography collection.
Gallery talks are free with MFA admission.
