A Fresh Focus on Female Photographers
One of the things we love about our Menlo Park hotel location is our close proximity to the vast number of programs and exhibits open to the public at nearby Stanford University. Beginning January 28 through May 4, the university's world-class Cantor Arts Center shines the spotlight on contemporary female photographers in "She Who Tells A Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World," an exhibit introducing the pioneering work of a dozen women photographers. Their thought-provoking work explores "the notion of representation with passion and power, questioning tradition and challenging perceptions of Middle Eastern identity." You'll see beautifully expressive images ranging from fine art to photojournalism, united in their ability to shed light on the political and social issues of the day. You'll leave feeling a little more enlightened about a complex, politically charged region.
