The Farnsworth Art Museum has one of the largest holdings of photographs by Berenice Abbott in Maine. In conjunction with Women of Vision in which Abbott’s work is prominently featured, Susan Danly will provide an overview of Abbott’s connection to the state’s distinctive place and people within the history of mid-20th century American art. 

Currently an independent curator of American Art, Susan Danly (Ph.D. 1983, Brown University) has worked in museums across the country over the past thirty years – from the Huntington Library and Art Galleries in California to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, and the Portland Museum of Art.  A specialist in the history of American photography, she has authored numerous books and catalogs, most recently a history of photography in Maine, along with Libby Bischof and the Maine State Historian, Earle G. Shettleworth.
