Charles Cushman's Journey Through a Vanishing America
An Illustrated Lecture by Eric Sandweiss

Advance tickets are highly recommended

The Velaslavasay Panorama welcomes Eric Sandweiss, a professor of architectural and urban history at Indiana University, who will offer an illustrated lecture highlighting the life and art of Charles Cushman, prolific amateur photographer and part-time businessman. Cushman traveled back and forth across the United States between 1938 to 1969, spending much of his time in California.

During that time, Cushman shot more than 14,000 Kodachrome slides documenting mid-century American life in vibrant color, recording the subject and details of each exposure in pocket-sized notebooks that he carried everywhere. The images, which reveal in full and immediate color what historians of the midcentury American scene have come to know primarily in shades of gray, were filed away unseen for another 30 years until archivists at Cushman's alma mater, Indiana University, rediscovered his slides and notebooks in the 1990s.

Eric Sandweiss is Carmony Associate Professor of History at Indiana University. He is the co-author of Edward Muybridge and the Photographic Panorama of San Francisco and author of St. Louis: The Evolution of an American Urban Landscape. His new book The Day in its Color: Charles Cushman's Photographic Journey Through a Vanishing America, will be available at the event.
