Persistence of Vision: The Illusion of Motion in the Age of Muybridge

July 14, 2010, 7 p.m.

By the time he died in 1904, this phenomenon was well on its way to becoming a prominent global industry. In this illustrated lecture, Bernard Welt, Professor of Arts and Humanities at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, reviews the rapid development of the movies as new technology and artistic medium.
