UI Alumna Will Lead Museum Of Art Gallery Tour Sept. 28

University of Iowa alumna Christine Flavin will lead a tour through "Light, Source and Subject in Photography," an exhibition currently on display at the UI Museum of Art (UIMA), beginning at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28.

Flavin, curator of the exhibition and assistant professor of photography at Northern Michigan University, will address how, with the invention of photography in 1839, the power of light was harnessed to produce documents of visual perception.

Flavin holds a bachelors degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master of fine arts degree from the UI. She organized "Light, Source and Subject in Photography" while she was a curatorial assistant at the UIMA, and she joined the faculty of Northern Michigan this fall.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 9 p.m. Thursdays. Admission is free. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
