Now or Never: The Lost Photos of Diane Arbus
When Diane Arbus first descended, camera in hand, into the 42nd Street basement quarters of Huberts Dime Museum and Flea Circus in New York, she knew she had found something that spoke  to her. Her fascination with sideshow freaks and others  on society's  margins revolutionized her art and led her to create  images that are among the most compelling of the last half-century.

Those first photos at Hubert's - tentative steps along a path that would earn her a place as one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th century - went unnoticed for decades until Robert Langmuir, a Philadelphia-based dealer and collector of African-Americana, purchased the archives and memorabilia of Charlie Lucas, a Hubert's performer and manager.  Langmuir's life-changing discovery of Arbuss photos amid the papers of this unheralded sideshow performer has  generated enormous excitement, along with renewed interest in Hubert's Museum and the "old weird  America."

First Person Arts has arranged to share this remarkable story through an exclusive one-day excursion to Phillips de Pury in New York, where the collection will be on exhibit for only a few  days before going to auction.  Mr. Langmuir who is  the subject of the new  book, Hubert's Freaks: The Rare-Book  Dealer, the Times Square Talker, and the Lost Photos of Diane Arbus, will travel with our group and join us for an annotated tour of the exhibit, followed by a seminar about Arbus and the Hubert's collection.

Departure from Philadelphia is at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, returning by 6:30 p.m. the same day.  Light refreshments will be provided upon departure from Philadelphia and arrival in New York.  The cost is $145 for the full trip or $55 for the NYC portion only.
