Artist Talk: Bill Owens
Tuesday, April 3 | 7pm
Free and open to the public

For over 40 years, Bill Owens has chronicled the “American dream” with a wry, yet compassionate eye. His books, Suburbia (1972) and Working (I Do It for the Money) (1977), are landmarks of twentieth-century documentary photography. Join us as Owens discusses his life in photography on the occasion of our current exhibition It's Just a Job: Bill Owens and Studs Terkel on Working in 1970s America, which features 31 photographs from the Working series. Aside from his notable artistic achievements, Owens is also a pioneer in craft beer and spirits, and is the founder and president of the American Distilling Institute, the oldest and largest organization of small batch, independently owned distillers in the United States. This event is part of our April Art After Hours programming when the museum is open from 5-9pm with refreshments, live music, and more.
