Event occured on Sun, Feb 16 2014, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm CST
Repeats every 30 days until Sunday, June 01, 2014

Ruth Gruber: Photojournalist is an exhibit that celebrates the remarkable life, vision, and heroic tenacity of a 20th century pioneer and trailblazing photojournalist. Now 102 years old, Gruber’s work spans more than five decades, from her groundbreaking work in the Soviet Arctic in the 1930s and her iconic images of Jewish refugees on the ship Exodus 1947, to her later work in the 1980s documenting Ethiopian Jews in the midst of a civil war. A selection of vintage prints are presented alongside contemporary prints made from original negatives, early film footage, and ephemera from her personal archive.
