NewsArtist Wendy Ewald Visits Marlboro
Marlboro, VT-Artist Wendy Ewald will be giving a talk on Tuesday, December 4th, at 4:00PM in Marlboro College’s Appletree building.
The talk will be focused on Ewald’s work teaching photography to children and young people around the world. Ewald will show examples of her art, as well as the artwork of her students. She has encouraged her students to become photographers in their own right, turning their experiences and dreams into powerful, poetic images.

In 1989, she created the Literacy through Photography programs in Houston, Texas, and Durham, North Carolina. Currently, she is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University and Project Director of the Literacy through Photography program.
Ewald’s long-standing commitment to helping children recognize the worth of their own visions has gained her numerous awards, including a Fulbright Fellowship, MacArthur Fellowship, several National Endowment for the Arts grants, and the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Visual Arts Fellowship for South Africa.
