Greta Pratt in “Living History”

Photography professor Greta Pratt is included in the exhibition Living History at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, Wyoming, May 20–September 11. Living History features more than 90 works by seven artists in an exhibition that “explores – primarily through photography and film projects – the mythology of history, its ties to popular culture and commerce, and layers of truth and fiction as well as its strong hold on our imagination.” In her photographic essay, “Nineteen Lincolns,” Greta Pratt photographs individuals and groups of members of The Association of Lincoln Presenters. All are inspired and imbued with history’s invested presentation of Lincoln as the self-made man who held strong to his own principles. In her “Using History” series, Pratt explores how Americans remember and embody their own history through pageants and tourist iconography.
