Penn State alumnus (’74) and award-winning photojournalist Steve McCurry’s exhibit “Still Moving” is set for display starting June 14 at the Palmer Museum of Art.
You’ve probably already seen some of his work – McCurry is behind the iconic 1984 “Sharbat Gula Girl” photograph that appeared on the cover of National Geographic and what some call the “The First World’s Third World Mona Lisa.”
McCurry came to Penn State by way of Philadelphia and went on to study film before working for a local newspaper. He also spent time as a freelancer and traveled across the world taking photos, most notably of Afghan refugees.
McCurry’s ‘Still Moving” exhibit will feature some of his less familiar work as well as recent work., including both panoramic and up close photographs.
The exhibit is co-curated by Palmer Museum curator Joyce Robinson and photography professor Steven Rubin. The pair will lead a talk titled “Still Moving: Photographs by Steve McCurry,” on Friday, July 15 at 12:10pm on the museum’s second floor.
The exhibit will run from June 14 until September 14, so if you aren’t in town this summer you can still catch it once the fall semester starts. The Palmer Museum of Art is open six days a week: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays noon to 4 p.m. and admission is free.
