Virtual Program: Through The Lens of Arthur Rothstein: Beyond Shanghai

September 9, 2021 | 6:30pm CST

Online

Arthur Rothstein, best-known for his Dust Bowl photography during the Great Depression, was the recipient of more than three dozen awards in photography and photojournalism over the course of his career. One of his lesser-known projects included an assignment photographing the Jewish refugee community in Shanghai during World War II, showcased in our new exhibit, Shanghai: Safe Haven During the Holocaust 

Join us for an illustrated lecture that will place Rothstein’s Shanghai photo essay in the context of his extraordinary 50-year career. The lecture will be presented by Rothstein’s daughter, Dr. Ann Rothstein Segan, and her husband, urban planner and affordable-housing specialist at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Brodie Hefner.
