Join us for an evening with photographer Susan Meiselas '70 at the International Center of Photography (ICP). Meiselas work is featured in ICP’s new exhibit "Close Enough: New Perspectives from 12 Women Photographers of Magnum". The exhibit focuses on pivotal projects in the careers of 12 contemporary women photographers of Magnum Photos, the pioneering photography collective. Magnum Photos is a co-operative of acclaimed, independent photographers who share an ongoing commitment to documenting world events, people, places, daily life, and culture. With a title inspired by Magnum co-founder Robert Capa’s quote, "If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough". Close Enough presents more than 150 works, including Susan Meiselas’ work with women who sought refuge from domestic violence in the Midlands, UK. The exhibition coincides with the 75th anniversary of Magnum Photos’ founding. Susan Meiselas is a documentary photographer based in New York. Meiselas is well known for her documentation of human rights issues in Latin America. Her photographs are included in North American and international collections. In 1992 she was made a MacArthur Fellow, received a Guggenheim Fellowship (2015), and most recently the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize (2019) and the first Women in Motion Award from Kering and the Rencontres d’Arles. She has been the President of the Magnum Foundation since 2007, with a mission to expand diversity and creativity in documentary photography. A reception will follow the presentation.

Join us for "Forgotten North Broad Street" a Hidden City walking tour. One hundred years ago, North Broad was THE place to live in Philadelphia. Enormous mansions, such as the Widener home, a vibrant Jewish neighborhood, and great high schools that were the pride of this neighborhood. We'll uncover secrets in and around Temple U, and learn about famous auto showrooms and car-related factories which lined this beautiful boulevard. After years of decline following World War II, investment has brought the reopening of the mind-boggling Metropolitan Opera House and the stately yet strange creation of Willis Hale, the Divine Lorraine Hotel. Masks are required; comfortable attire and shoes recommended. The docent-led tour will start at Broad and Spring Garden (Southeast Corner), the only synagogue designed by the architectural genius Frank Furness. The tour continues straight north up Broad Street for about 2 miles, ending at York Street.
