Taking place during the Vivian Maier: In Her Own Hands Exhibition, George Webber will bring light to the intriguing career and artistic practice of Vivian Maier’s photography. A Chicago-based nanny, Vivian Maier took up street and travel photography in her spare time, a part of her life she barely shared with the world. Now she is celebrated as a true master. This will be an evening as unique as her story. 

Salon Series: George Webber on Vivian Maier will take place on March. 18th, 2020 from 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM at the Glenbow Museum.
