Our series exploring the relationship between art and literature continues with this session devoted to the art of jewelry, and the women artists in the current exhibit. Following a special docent tour of Outrageous Ornament, the group will discuss Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs by Sally Mann with Rizzoli's Senior Editor, Ellen Cohen.

Through words and pictures, Hold Still is Sally Mann’s page-turning memoir based on her experiences growing up in the American South, including stories about family, race, mortality, and some memory of the controversies that have surrounded the question of whether her intimate portraits of her children, often nude, were exploitative. Her wonderfully vivid memoir is illustrated with family snapshots, her own and other people’s photos, documents, and letters. Please note: mature content.

Light refreshments served.
