Artist talk and moderated conversation begins at 5:00 p.m. in the Russell/Wanlass Performance Hall. Reception and refreshments to follow at NEHMA.
Photographer, marriage and family therapist, and USU alum Kimberly Anderson will discuss her photography and her identity as a transgender woman.
Her presentation includes landscape photographs taken during her transition and a later series of salt-print photographs of the Great Salt Lake using actual salt from the lake itself. She is also the photographer and author of the "Mama Dragon Story Project," featuring portraits and autobiographical essays from over 135 Mormon mothers of LGBTQ+ children.
Andersonâ€™s work is part of the Museumâ€™s collection and is currently on display in the exhibition "Sky Above, Earth Below: A History of Western Landscape Photography."
This event is sponsored by the USU Inclusion Center, the USU Center for Intersectional Gender Studies and Research, the USU Department of Psychology, and the USU Department of Art + Design.
