Barbara Bosworth: Landscape Stories

March 2, 2024

Cleveland Museum of Art
East Boulevard
Cleveland, OH. 44106

Barbara Bosworth’s large-format photographs and artist’s books explore the overt and subtle relationships between humans and the rest of the natural world. Her caring attention to the world around her results in images that inspire us to look closely and remind us that while we shape nature, it also shapes us. Bosworth grew up in Novelty, Ohio, and currently lives in Massachusetts, where she is a professor emeritus of photography at Boston’s Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Her art has been the subject of recent retrospective exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum; Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts; Smithsonian American Art Museum; and Phoenix Art Museum. 

Join Bosworth as she speaks about her photographs and the stories that shaped them. Her imagery, highlighted for its ethereal beauty and emotional resonance, explores the intersections of nature, humanity, and memory. Through her biographical storytelling, attendees will gain insight into her artistic process, inspirations, and the connections she forges between the natural world and human experience. This lecture is in conjunction with the CMA’s photography exhibition Barbara Bosworth: Sun Light Moon Shadow, on view from February 25 to June 30, 2024. 

The lecture is free and open to the public.  Tickets are required. Click HERE to reserve tickets.
