Thursday, December 6th, 7:30 PM
American Museum of Natural History, New York, NY
The American Museum of Natural History and Poets House present former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass (What Light Can Do: Essays on Art, Imagination, and the Natural World) in conversation with internationally acclaimed entomologist and two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner E.O. Wilson (The Social Conquest of Earth).
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
