BYU’s Museum of Art will be hosting a guided tour of the exhibition “Pulitzer Prize Photographs” on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 12:10 p.m. The exhibit closes on March 3, so the tour will be one of the last chances visitors will have to view the photography.

The exhibit, which is on lend from the Newseum in Washington D.C., features Pulitzer Prize photography since 1942, interactive kiosks and videos of interviews with the photographers.

Kenneth Hartvigsen, the museum’s curator of American art, will guide visitors through the various parts of the exhibition.

“Viewing the entire collection of Pulitzer Prize photographs together will be a profound experience that will remind visitors of the responsibility we all have to learn from history and work together to create a brighter future,” said Hartvigsen.

To learn more about the event, visit the MOA’s website or their Facebook Page, where the Gallery Talk will be livestreamed.
