When: thru April 3, 2011
Where: Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington, Chicago

Born in 1926, Vivan Maier came to the northern shores of Chicago to work as a nanny. In her free time, she would venture into the city armed with a Rolleiflex camera to document everyday people living their everyday lives.

While her work spans decades after WWII, only recently have tens of thousands of negatives been rediscovered—and never have they been exhibited so close to home.

Don’t miss this first American curated exhibit of her compelling work—just 80 pieces—which will surely leave us wanting more.
