World-renowned photographer and Oneonta native Stephen Joseph will be on hand at Hartwick College’s Foreman Gallery Sunday, July 28 at 3 p.m. to present a guided, curated tour of his exhibit, Broadway Revealed: Behind the Theater Curtain. Joseph will offer insights and anecdotes on its creation. The event is free and open to the public; donations are appreciated.
Photographed over an eight-year period, Broadway Revealed offers a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating some of the world’s most well-known theatrical productions, including “Chicago,” “American Idiot,” “Hair,” and “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” The exhibit shines a spotlight on set designers, costume designers, lighting designers, and all of the creative people and entities that support the production of Broadway shows.
Joseph will be joined by Patrice Macaluso, a scenic and costume designer, who will provide greater detail on the craftspeople depicted in the exhibition and their role in creating Broadway productions. Macaluso is a volunteer at the Greater Oneonta Historical Society, where she has an exhibition on display promoting the history of the Oneonta Theatre.
Debuting in December 2012, Broadway Revealed has been featured in galleries across the country, including the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in Lincoln Center.
An eponymous book featuring photographs from the exhibit was published in 2015.
Based in the San Francisco Bay area, Joseph created a celebratory homage to his hometown through panoramic images in his book “Oneonta 360” (Argian Press).
“I’m excited to bring this collection of images to Hartwick College and share this work with the Oneonta community,” he said upon the opening of the exhibit in June.
Broadway Revealed: Behind the Theater Curtain is presented by Hartwick College with support from the Greater Oneonta Historical Society.
The exhibit is on display at the Foreman Gallery Thursday through Sunday from 2 – 8 p.m. through August 11.
