Photographer Michael Vahrenwald (’13) in Bronx exhibition

Photographer alum Michael Vahrenwald (’13) is exhibiting works in a group exhibition (Not So) Still Life at Wave Hill. (Not So) Still Life presents novel ways that contemporary artists are transforming the still life genre to engage with current culture.

 

Vahrenwald’s photographs from his series, Forest Floor (after Otto Marseus van Schrieck), capture found still lifes on sidewalks in Brooklyn’s industrial areas, in a nod to the paintings of 17th century Dutch botanist and entomologist Otto Marseus van Schrieck.

 

Wave Hill is located at West 249th St, Bronx, NY 10471 and is open Tuesday – Sunday from 9:00 – 4:00 pm. Free with admission.
