Arts Calendar

Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives

Date: June 16, 2018 to August 11, 2018,
Venue: Wichita-Sedgwick Co. Historical Museum - 204 S. Main, Wichita

The Event:

Jacob Riis (1849-1914) was a pioneering newspaper reporter and social reformer in New York at the turn of the twentieth century. His then-novel idea of using photographs of the city's slums to illustrate the plight of impoverished residents established Riis as forerunner of modern photojournalism. Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives features photographs by Riis and his contemporaries, as well as his handwritten journals and personal correspondence. Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives opens to the public June 16 at the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum and will be on  view through August 11.
