Curator Stephen Jareckie, speaker on Sunday, June 2, 2019

Learn how an art museum goes about creating a photography collection. PHSNE member Stephen Jareckie has been Consulting Curator of Photography at the Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM) since 1996, after retiring from a 35-year career as Curator of Photography at the Worcester Art Museum. With 58 years of photography collection experience, Jareckie will use two signature images from FAM’s holdings to describe how the collection has evolved since the museum began collecting in 1981, while reflecting on how collecting photographs has moved from a specialized niche into the fine art mainstream.
