In the Vernacular: Everyday Images of Oklahoma Life exhibit closes
August 31, 2021
The Oklahoma History Center’s photographic exhibit entitled In the Vernacular: Everyday Images of Oklahoma Life will close on Tuesday, August 31. A celebration of everyday image-making, this exhibit features photographs from the Oklahoma Historical Society’s collections. Visitors will see fun, quirky, and sometimes odd images of Oklahomans. The photographs on display were captured for a variety of reasons, including souvenir postcards, government archives, magazines, newspapers, and family albums.
Vernacular photography is a genre comprised of family and professional studio portraits as well as casual snapshots. These images are usually created by amateur photographers documenting personal history.
The exhibit is on display in the Cooper and Gladys West Atrium Wing and Gallery. The Oklahoma History Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call 405-522-0765.
