In Time We Shall Know Ourselves’: Photographs by Raymond Smith
“In Time We Shall Know Ourselves “presents the photographs of Raymond Smith originally taken in the summer and early fall of 1974 during a cross country road trip at a pivotal moment in Smith’s life. For Smith, the journey was one of self-discovery, and would shape his photo taking and professional pursuits for the rest of life. For the viewer of this collection, the journey is through an America rich with culture. These photos capture a sense of character that could only have existed in this place, at this time. March 25, 6-8 p.m. Artist Lecture and Book Signing with Raymond Smith.

Through May 12
“With Help From Our Friends”: Reflections on the Permanent Collection

Soon to be displayed in the downstairs gallery, from March 1-May 12, is an exhibition drawn from the permanent collection of the museum featuring some of its most iconic imagery. The curation and context of the show has been provided by the students of Daytona State College, including sections of Professor Jayanti Seiler’s class “Photography as an Art Form.”

“A House is Not a Home”: Works by Brooke DiDonato

Accompanying the permanent collection photographs will be the work of Brooke DiDonato. Born and raised in Ohio, she is now based in New York City. She graduated with a degree in photojournalism from Kent State University in 2012. Her work explores the complexity of human cognition, and what happens when psychological anomalies manifest in reality. By placing viewers in the context of a narrative with no clear beginning or end, she forces them to ask “How did we get here?,” “What happens next?” and “Can we go on?”  “A House is Not a Home” is a series of self-portraits conveying feelings of isolation and discontent experienced when returning to her hometown in Ohio.

Film Series: “First Fight. Then Fiddle: Black Identity in America Cinema 1920-2016”
The evening screenings are followed by informal discussion, facilitated by film curator Eric Breitenbach and guest speakers.  It will run through April 19. Admission by donation. Previews at 2 p.m. and an evening screening at 6 p.m. Sorry, no food or drink. When possible, films are closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
