Focus45: Focus 45 Lunch Series with Joe R. Struble (Free to Members)
On Thursday March 14, 2013 from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm in Curtis Theatre
Daguerreian studios were established in Rochester as early as 1841 and many thrived here at the “Lion on the Genesee” until nearly 1860. Thousands of daguerreotype portraits were made here of the wealthy Pioneer families as well as of ordinary citizens of the community. Archivist Joe R. Struble will show slides of many of these notable images, as well the first known photographic image of Rochester, an 1852 full-plate daguerreotype of the corner of Main and State streets.
About Focus 45 Lunch Series
Eastman House holds six collections that chronicle the breadth of the photographic and motion picture mediums as well as George Eastman’s personal, professional, and philanthropic legacies. The Museum staff members' stories are just as fascinating as the collections themselves.
Once a month, the Museum’s newest program series, Focus 45, will offer the opportunity for you to talk with staff as they share exciting behind-the-scenes stories, hidden gems of the collections, and information about their work to preserve and interpret the world’s photographic and motion picture treasures.
Bring your lunch or purchase a Focus 45 box lunch special in the Eastman House Café. Call (585) 271-3361 ext. 223 to have your food order ready for pick-up.
Offered the second Thursday of each month, this event is included with admission, free to members. Admission talk only: $6, $3 students.
