    ARTbreak : Talk: Through the Lens of L. H. Bailey with John Stempien, Mary Whale

    Liberty Hyde Bailey (1858-1954), widely known as the Father of Modern Horticulture and South Haven's favorite son was a man of many and diverse talents" but few people know he was also an avid and talented photographer. When Bailey learned to use a camera in 1886, his eye for beauty and his affinity for the natural world became evident in his graceful compositions. The L. H. Bailey Museum owns more than 100 of Bailey's original glass plate negatives.

    John Stempien, former director of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum, and photographer and KIA docent David Curl offer insight into Bailey s photographic skills, aesthetics, and philosophy as well as the story of how these rare, original glass plate negatives were reprinted for an exhibition.

    ARTbreak is a weekly program about art, artists and exhibitions. Donations welcome. Bring your brown bag lunch, coffee provided.
