NORWALK, Conn. -- In collaboration with the Silvermine School of Art, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is kicking off its 50th Anniversary with a new exhibition by artist and photography instructor Bruce Dunbar.
The exhibition, “Endangered & Re-envisioned: Iconic Landmarks and Interiors,” will open to the public on Thursday, April 7, from noon to 4 p.m. at the museum, 295 West Ave.
A fundraising reception will follow from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the reception are $10 for non-members and $5 for members. All proceeds will benefit the museum’s cultural and educational programs.
The exhibition, which runs to July 6, will feature some of Dunbar’s analog and digital work focusing on several Connecticut structures built between 1870 and 1940, including both private residences and public spaces.
“I am seeking to unite the past history of the landmark with the present context in which it exists,” said Dunbar, “including both images of interiors and exteriors, in order to draw attention to the rich history of each landmark, it's various past import and current status as landmark."
Born in Stratford, Dunbar received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston University and his Master of Arts degree from New York University.
His photographs and mixed media have been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in Connecticut and New York City.
Dunbar currently teaches black and white and digital photography courses at Silvermine in New Canaan, along with several workshops exploring different aspects on the art of photography.
