Event Description

Photographer Rhona Bitner, who is featured in the exhibition “A Sense of Place” at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College, will discuss her work.

Bitner is a photographer known for her work involving theatre and spectacle. Her latest series “Listen” explores the legacy of American music through the photography of famous venues. During the past six years she has single-handedly photographed more than 200 venues in various states of usage or decrepitude across the United States. Her photos are lush and colorful; the spaces continue to exude the energy they absorbed during their prime.
