 Figge is offering the 5-week class, Twentieth Century Photography, free to Figge members. For non-members, the class is $65. The class meets every Tuesday from 7 -8:30 pm starting on September 30, with the last class on October 28.

Since photography's invention in 1839, artists have both celebrated the medium and feared its effect on their craft. This course will trace the development of photography throughout the 20th century from its artistic beginnings to photography in a post-painting art world. This course is offered in conjunction with the exhibition In the Light: Photographs from the Brent Sikkema Collection. Registration and payment is due September 26. Call 563.326.7804 x2045.
