Closing Reception April 30 for the Blake Little: Photographs From the Gay Rodeo Exhibit

April 22, 2019

From 4:30-6 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, on the second floor of the library, Rebecca Scofield, U of I assistant professor of 20th century American history will present at the closing reception of the Blake Little photography exhibit.

The library has displayed the black-and-white photography exhibit since January. The exhibit consists of 41 photographs taken between 1988 and 1992, and documents the gay rodeo circuit and the lives of many of its participants in those years. The collected body of work not only serves as a stunning example of black-and-white portraiture and rodeo photography, it also explores the diverse and complex natures of individual and community identity in the West.
