Friday, January 10: Experience the World of Vivian Maier 

Vivian Maier (1926-2009) thrilled the world when her photographs and life story went viral after being posted online following the discovery of her work in 2007. Born in New York City, she spent her childhood in France and returned to New York in the late 1930s. She later moved to Chicago, where she worked as a nanny for about forty years supporting herself and her lifelong passion for photography. Maier created more than 100,000 negatives, but showed few images to anyone. Following Maier's death, champions of her photography have been managing her archives and organizing exhibitions and events across the United States and around the world. The Cleveland Print Room is hosting the Ohio premiere of Vivian Maier's work as they celebrate the first anniversary of their opening tonight from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
