Love photography? Come join us at the Art Museum for the opening reception of our new exhibition "Paul Caponigro: The Polaroid Years". The exhibition features photographs taken between 1959 and 1968 when the artist was a consultant for Polaroid, testing each new black and white film product and camera. Fine art prints which illustrate Caponigro’s blend of technical mastery and deep spirituality are combined with rarely-seen test-prints and unique positive-negative pairs that give a sense of Caponigro’s day-to-day work at Polaroid.

The reception starts at 5pm and is free and open to the public. For more information please call 860.231.5743, email artmuseum@usj.edu, or visit www.usj.edu/artmuseum.

This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
