An in-depth look at the Beat Generation as seen through the lens of Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997). Although well known for his poetry, Ginsberg was also an avid photo- grapher, capturing the people and places around him in spontaneous, often intimate snapshots. His black-and-white photographs include portraits of William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac, and others, along with self-portraits. The images not only are revealing portrayals of celebrated personalities, but also convey the unique lifestyle and spirit of the Beats.

Venue Description: Tues./Thurs./Fri., 11am?6pm. OPEN LATE Wed., 11am?8pm. Sat.,11am?5pm. Closed Sun., Mon., and major holidays.
