While this isn’t happening in the Fine Arts Library, we wanted to pass the word about this event at Baylor’s Martin Museum of Art on September 13, 2012, from 5:30-7pm. About the photography exhibition:
A lyrical meditation on the joys, wonders, and anxieties of childhood, Fireflies brings us back to the small truths so often pushed aside or forgotten, as we become adults. Informed by Carter’s own imagination-filled days spent playing in early boyhood haunts, these images allow us all to once again inhabit the stories, dreams, and make-believe worlds that children conjure.
