During his 50-year association with the Village Voice, photographer Fred W. McDarrah (1926–2007) covered the city’s downtown scenes, producing an unmatched and encyclopedic visual record of people, movements, and events. McDarrah captured every vital moment, from Jack Kerouac reading poetry, to Bob Dylan hanging out in Sheridan Square, to Andy Warhol filming in the Factory, to the Stonewall Riots. Join us for a special evening of conversation devoted to McDarrah’s life and work between eminent historian and Dylan biographer Sean Wilentz and members of the McDarrah family.
