Minnesota Iran Photographers, 'Iran Today: Photographs by Minnesota Travelers'

Lobby Galleries, first and second floors

August 5 - September 11, 2021

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 5, 5 - 8 pm

In November of 2019, a group of Minnesotans visited Iran, traveling from Tehran in the north to Isfahan, Shiraz and the islands of Qeshm and Hormoz in the Persian Gulf. The photographs in this exhibition document their experience, and capture insights they gained into Iranian culture and the daily lives of its citizens.  The work contrasts with the images of Iran presented by the media and presents an alternative view of a country few Americans find opportunity to see for themselves.
