In Vibrant Color
General Event Information
Don’t miss PMoA’s first exhibition from the Smithsonian institution! "In Vibrant Color: Vintage Celebrity Portraits from the Harry Warnecke Studio" is a collection of color photographs of celebrities who rose to fame during the age of black-and-white television.
Warnecke (1900-1984), a pioneering photographer at the New York Daily News, designed a one-shot camera that yielded color images for the Daily News' Sunday magazine in the 1930s.
This exhibition of 24 color photographs from those sessions includes actors Lucille Ball and Roy Rogers, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, baseball star Ted Williams, Olympian Babe Didrikson Zaharias and General George S. Patton.
