In the Room with David Hume Kennerly
a moderated discussion and multi-media presentation
Performance Dates
Friday, October 11, 2019 7:00pm at CENTENNIAL HALL

University of Arizona Presidential Scholar and former chief White House photographer David Hume Kennerly will be joined by fellow Pulitzer Prize winner and historian Jon Meacham. Kennerly has been a photographer on the front lines of history for over 50 years, and his iconic images of wars, politics, sports, celebrities and everyday life will be the foundation of the conversation. Meacham and Kennerly will discuss the importance of photography in culture and the ways it bears witness, helps us understand complex issues, evokes emotion and leads to a greater knowledge of our world.

This is a collaborative event in conjunction with the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona.

Tickets for this event are FREE, and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 6:00 pm, on October 11, the evening of the event. Proceed directly to the front doors of Centennial Hall to get your ticket. 

Please note that this event will have mandatory bag checks before entering and occurs during Family Weekend, so you may want to allow extra time for parking.
