BRATTLEBORO -- Vermont-based photographer Jen Morris will present "Landscape Photography and the USA" at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m.

Her presentation will discuss the varied ways in which landscape photography has reflected notions of cultural identity in the United States. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for students, free for BMAC members and children under 6.

Morris’ work uses the media of photography and video, and seeks to question the historic foundation of landscape photography. Her images represent unfulfilled longing, the impossible journey, false security or a simple sense of wonder and have been exhibited nationally and internationally.

Morris received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 1998 and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a Merit Scholar and Weinstein Memorial Fellowship recipient in 2006. She is an associate professor of art at Landmark College in Putney and an artist teacher with the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier.

Located in historic Union Station at the intersection of Main Street and Routes 119 and 142, the museum is wheelchair-accessible. For more information, call 802-257-0124 or visit www.brattleboromuseum.org.
