  • Hollywood Premier (1953), Weegee, Gift of Janet Lehr, Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College trots out 50 portraits from its mammoth photography holdings this month for “Facebook: Images of People in Photographs from the Permanent Collection.” Running June 27 through August 10, “Facebook” features some of the most influential photographers of the 20th century, including August Sander, Lewis Hine, Berenice Abbott, Garry Winogrand, Nan Goldin, and Cindy Sherman. Standouts from the show include Richard Avedon’s mug shot of boxer Oscar De La Hoya, fresh-faced in 1993; Walker Evans’s Tenant Farmer’s Wife, Alabama (1936), from his iconic work documenting the Great Depression; and Diane Arbus’s Young Man in Curlers at Home on West 20th Street, NYC, from 1966.

“Facebook” also features photographs by several lesser-known artists, including little seen noctural portraits of characters on the Coney Island boardwalk in the early 1970s by Jerry L. Thompson.

A tour of “Facebook,” led by curator Mary-Kay Lombino, will be held on Thursday, June 26, at 6pm in conjunction with the exhibition’s opening from 5 to 9pm.
