Eastman House Exhibits
The George Eastman House at 900 East Avenue has a new exhibition on view thru October 21. Ideas in Things offers a gallery of photographs that demonstrate their persistence as cultural artifacts and as a vehicle for memory and meaning. Included are works by Julia Margaret Cameron, Frederick H. Evans, Lucas Samaras, Larissa T. Sligh and Edward Steichen. The show looks at photographs as object; and features works from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries..

His Lost Bird Project focuses on five North American Birds driven to extinction in modern times – the Carolina Parakeet, the Heath Hen, the Great Auk, the Labrador Duck and the Passenger Pigeon.
