"Glorious, vibrant, and vital" are the words that Rochester architect, writer, and stage designer Claude Bragdon (1866-1946) accurately used to describe the women in his life. Bragdon's varied career led him through many social, artistic, and physical locations, and each step of the way provided him new women who mentored and nurtured him both personally and professionally. From family to friends and acquaintances, Bragdon's circle tended to include a number of notable women whom he chose to celebrate. This collection and preservation exhibit includes photos, artwork, books, and manuscripts.
"Glorious, Vibrant, and Vital" continues through August 6 at the Rush Rhees Library, University of Rochester River Campus. Free to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. library.rochester.edu.
