Fashion model, Surrealist muse and war photographer Lee Miller took some of the most famous images of World War II–era atrocities. American street photographer Vivian Maier took more than 150,000 photographs in her lifetime, primarily of the people and architecture of Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles. For both women, the discovery and recognition of their work arrived posthumously. Together we will examine the photographs of these two astonishing women, rediscover their extraordinary talent and relive their experiences.

There will be a break for lunch.
