The Velaslavasay Panorama welcomes Eric Sandweiss, a professor of architectural and urban history at Indiana University, who will offer an illustrated lecture highlighting the life and art of Charles Cushman, prolific amateur photographer and part-time businessman. Cushman traveled back and forth across the United States between 1938 and 1969, spending much of his time in California. During that time, he created over 14,000 Kodachrome slides documenting mid-century American life in vibrant color, a collection that was rediscovered in the archives of his alma mater, Indiana University in the 1990s.
 
Eric Sandweiss is Carmony Associate Professor of History at Indiana University, and is also the co-author of Edward Muybridge and the Photographic Panorama of San Francisco and author of St. Louis: The Evolution of an American Urban Landscape. His newest book is called The Day in Its Color: Charles Cushman's Photographic Journey across a Vanishing America, which will be available at the presentation.
