Welcome to the Mix: Each of Us Has a Story

Oral history has the power to enhance understanding and promote dialogue among citizens. Part of our philosophy involves telling the histories of everyone in our community, including those traditionally excluded from history books. In the past year, we have collected over 50 new oral histories. Through first-person perspectives and studio portraits, Welcome to the Mix provides a glimpse into some of the fascinating people and stories that will now be part of SDHC’s collection.

Talking With A Friend

Feb 13, 2019 - ongoing

Bern Schwartz embarked on an exciting new chapter in life when he turned his energy to
photography at the youthful age of sixty. Inspired by friendships he made with notable
photographers of the time, Schwartz’s goal was “to create pictures that are true to the
personality of each subject, and [would] stand the test of time…”.
Talking With A Friend: Portraits by Bern Schwartz showcases photographs made by the artist
from 1977-1978. The exhibition features portraits of Prince Charles, David Hockney, Twiggy,
and Zandra Rhodes among others. All of the images come from MOPA’s photography
collection, generously donated by the Bern Schwartz Family Foundation in 2017.
