American Moments: Photographs by John Shearer
ON VIEW: September 26 - December 23, 2018
American Moments: Photographs by John Shearer is a five-part symphony of images that tell the story of a turbulent period in American history.
Shearer says, “I would have loved to cover Bunker Hill during the American Revolution or the Civil War battle of Gettysburg. That was before my time, I was a product of the 60’s, and I am Black. My war was the war on poverty and inequality; its battle cry was the call for social justice.”
American Moments: Photographs by John Shearer is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College and curated by Helaine Posner, Chief Curator. Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art, and the Purchase College Foundation.
