Places of Power: Painted Photographs of Sacred Landscapes by Corson Hirschfeld
January 6 – March 28
The exhibit will be displayed in the museum’s second-floor Higginbotham gallery, and features breathtaking, hand-painted photographs of ancient, sacred spaces including cultural and archaeological sites, cultural landscapes and petroglyphs from over 20 different countries.
Hirschfeld came to Norman in 2006 to be with his wife, Tassie Hirschfeld, who is a professor in the Department of Anthropology in the University of Oklahoma College of Arts and Sciences. In his earlier days, he was a herpetologist studying reptiles and amphibians, and he also had a long career as a studio photographer in Cincinnati before moving to Norman. His creative talents included writing, and he published three suspense novels before moving to Norman.
