Dear Friends,

I am inviting you to Phono+Photo, a panel discussion on the development 
of non-music sound recording as an art form.

Co-hosted by the Departments of Sculpture and Sound, the discussion 
compares the evolution of environmental, non-music sound recording, or 
phonography, to the historical development of photography. Panelists 
include Bill Fontana (William and Stephanie Sick Distinguished 
Professor), curators from the Art Institute of Chicago, and SAIC faculty 
in Art History, Photography, Sound, and Art and Technology Studies.

The discussion happens from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 29.

Location: 120 Sculpture Space, The School of the Art Institute of 
Chicago, 280 South Columbus Drive, Chicago IL 60603

Admission free and open to the public. Limited seating available.

Sydney (1977) will be running in the lobby.
