Lewis & Clark College is hosting an exhibit titled “Reinventing Documentary: The Art of Allan Sekula” from Jan. 22 to March 15 in the Hoffman Gallery on campus.

Sekula was a photographer, theorist, historian, writer and educator who lived and work in Los Angeles, Calif.

An opening reception will be held at 5-7 p.m. today. Photo historian Blake Stimson, a professor at the University of Chicago, will lecture on Allan Sekula and the late photographer Paul Strand at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in Miller Hall, Room 105 on the Lewis & Clark campus, 0615 S.W. Palatine Hill Road.

The Hoffman Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free and open to the public. Parking on campus is free on weekends.
