Charles Mintz: Lustron Stories Opening Reception

Related Member: Charles Mintz

Reception: Friday May 4, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: Friday May 4, 6pm

Lustron Stories began six years ago when Mintz set out to photograph the people living in the porcelain-baked, enamel-coated, all-steel houses manufactured in Columbus, OH between 1948 and 1950 by the Lustron Corporation. The company was a unique response to the post-WWII housing shortage. The photographer was generously invited into his subjects' homes, where he recorded the lives and houses with straightforward warmth and a keen eye to detail.
