On Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 1 p.m., Farnsworth Art Museum Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky will discuss work in the museum’s ongoing exhibition “Emily Schiffer — Cheyenne River” as part of the monthly Curator’s Choice gallery talk series. Curator Choice Gallery Talks are free with museum admission, but reservations are required due to space limitations.

Komanecky will lead the group through this exhibition of work by Brooklyn-based photographer Emily Schiffer. The exhibition, which runs in the museum’s Craig Gallery through Jan. 16, documents the lives of young people on the Lakota Sioux Cheyenne River Reservation in rural South Dakota, where Schiffer founded the My Viewpoint Youth Photography program in 2005. Schiffer’s intent was to teach photography, partially to share her own enthusiasm for making photographs but also to provide a means for her students to express themselves and their lives on the reservation.

Curator’s Choice is a series that takes place on Wednesdays, inviting participants to look closely at great works of art with the Farnsworth’s curatorial staff during intimate tours of the museum’s exhibitions. The next Curator’s Choice talk will take place Wednesday, Dec. 8; curatorial assistant Jane Bianco will discuss works in the exhibition “Alvan Fisher and the Scenic, the Spectacular.”

The gallery talks are free with museum admission. Space is limited to 20 people. For more information or to make a reservation, call the Education Department at 596-0949. The tours begin in the lobby at the museum’s main entrance, 16 Museum St.
