Join us on Friday, May 10, at 6:00 pm to celebrate New Ms. Thang, curated by Dayna Joseph ’19. The exhibition, located in the Kettlewell Print Study Room, examines the relationship between the glamour of classic Hollywood and glamour as redefined by contemporary black female photographers and their subjects. New Ms. Thang is the capstone project for Dayna, the 2017-18 Carole Marchand ’57 Endowed Intern.

This event is happening in conjunction with the 2019 Senior Thesis Exhibition opening reception. The reception is free and open to the public.
