On Friday, March 9, from noon until 1:00pm, Key West Art & Historical Society welcomes Ann Rothstein-Segan Ph.D. for a lunchtime lecture at the Custom House Museum, 281 Front Street in Key West.
Dr. Rothstein-Segan, a New York-based oral historian, is curator of the work of her father, renowned documentary photographer, the late Arthur Rothstein, one of the most important and influential photojournalists in American history.
A recipient of more than 35 photojournalism awards during his 50-year career, Rothstein spent time in Key West as a Farm Security Administration photographer —a program established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as part of his New Deal to help struggling farmers. Dr. Rothstein-Segan will share the stories behind many her father’s photographs made on assignment across the US and beyond.
Dr. Rothstein-Segan holds a Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies focused on the application of expressive arts for healing and social change. She is dedicated to promoting her fathers legacy and is currently visiting schools in Monroe County as part of the Key West Art and Historical Society’s Primary Sources series.
