Please Join Amy Levine-Kennedy, Koslowe Gallery Curator in a discussion followed by a tour. “Ruth Gruber: Photojournalist,” comes to us from the International Center of Photography in NY and curator Maya Benton. A historian and humanitarian, Gruber was best known for her work documenting the resettling of Jewish refugees after World War 11.

“This exhibition celebrates the remarkable life, vision, and heroic tenacity of Ruth Gruber (1911-2016) a 20th-century pioneer and trailblazing photojournalist. Born to Jewish immigrants in Brooklyn, Gruber became the youngest PhD in the world, at the age of 20. In 1935, she became the first correspondent to travel to Siberia and the Soviet Arctic. Although she is known primarily as an author and journalist, photography was a component of her earliest reportage; her groundbreaking work as a photojournalist spans more than five decades on four continents.”  -Maya Benton, ICP Curator
