Central College's Mills Gallery presents Photography Exhibition by Jose Galvez
A photography exhibit featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Jose Galvez will run from October 4-15 as a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, at the Mills Gallery in the Lubbers Center for the Visual Arts on the campus of Central College.
Galvez also will host a virtual presentation at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, in the gallery.
His black and white photography documents the Latino experience in the United States over the past 40 years. "I am creating an historical record: the long view of what Latino life has been like across the United States over the decades," Galvez says. "Through photographs taken at various times in a multitude of places, but all here in this country, I have been studying our behavior. How do new immigrants adapt? How do their children navigate a bilingual, bicultural existence? How do their grandchildren display their American-ness with a tense mixture of social savvy and longing for the past?"
The Mills Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
