AgWorks Road Trip: Vivian Maier -Out of the Shadows
Cleveland Print Room
January 18, 2014
Vivian Maier was the nanny with a secret life who thrilled the world when her photographs and life story went viral after being posted online following the discovery of her work in 2007. Born in New York City, she spent her childhood in France and returned to New York in the late 1930s. She later moved to Chicago, where she worked as a nanny for about forty years supporting herself and her lifelong passion for photography. Maier created more than 100,000 negatives, but showed few images to anyone. Following Maier’s death, champions of her photography have been managing her archives and organizing exhibitions and events across the United States and around the world.
This winter, The Cleveland Print Room, a non-profit community darkroom, educational center, studio workspace, and photographic gallery in Cleveland, OH will present the Ohio premiere of Vivian Maier’s work as they celebrate the first anniversary of their opening. On January 18, 2014, AgWorks will take a road trip to Cleveland, OH to see the exhibit. Plans include the visit to the Cleveland Print Room and lunch or dinner in Cleveland.
