Lectures & Learning


When: Tue., May 22, 6 p.m. 2012

About early journalist Jacob Riis, President Theodore Roosevelt said, "The countless evils which lurk in the dark corners of our civic institutions, which stalk abroad in the slums ... have met in Mr. Riis the most formidable opponent ever encountered by them in New York City." The Danish-American often sparked social reform with his graphic pictures of city slums, and it's the possibility for that kind of change that curator Blake Milteer will discuss at 6 tonight, at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org). The free lecture will also include a deeper look at the works in the Depression Era Photographs exhibition. — Bryce Crawford
