Long before Instagram and Snapchat were mere twinkles in some app developer’s eye, photography underwent a massive transformation from grainy black and white prints to the full-color images we see today. The exhibition follows artists’ journeys as they navigated the yet-uncharted territory of color photography, leading up to the medium’s evolution as a dominant contemporary art form. In addition to admiring the 75 key works in the exhibit, you can stop by the collection of color snapshots contributed by members of the local community—take a look, you might recognize someone you know.
