Thelma Pepper Drop-in Tours 

Thelma Pepper

I don’t know about you but I have visited the Thelma Pepper exhibit at the Remai Modern like 10 times since it opened. I am a sucker for black and white film photography at the best of times, but there is something so magical and nostalgic about Thelma’s photographs. The way she created panoramas, the wallpaper in the photos that totally still hangs in my baba’s dining room. I love spending my time with each photograph and imagining the fun that she was having with her subjects! 

Well, imagine no longer! On October 11th, Amy Jo Ehman, Thelma’s biographer is giving a guided tour of her exhibit! See details here!

Known for their annual Halloween Party, PiNK thought why not really go for it this year! So, they organized an all-ages haunted house!
