Virtual Exhibition Tour | Vivian Maier: In Color

Saturday, May 15

Our newest exhibition, Vivian Maier: In Color, moves with photographer Vivian Maier around the greater Chicago area from the mid-1950s through the 1970s, looking at its people and places from different viewpoints. Organized by her various perspectives, the exhibition highlights the different relationships between the photographer and her subjects. Maier uses the element of color in her compositions to heighten these relationships and bring out the beauty and tensions in these encounters.

Join Vivian Maier: In Color guest curator Frances Dorenbaum as she leads you on this virtual gallery tour, followed by a Q&A.

$5 general admission; FREE for members.

This event runs approximately one hour. A Zoom link will be provided after registration.


Frances Dorenbaum is a curator and art historian from Toronto who specializes in the history of photography. She holds a master of arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has collaborated on exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art in Evanston, Illinois, and the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, among others.
