This event is sold out.

Before there was film photography and camera phones, there was collodion printmaking. This complex process of capturing a photograph was used by A.J. Russell to document the western expansion of the Transcontinental Railroad, shown in the exhibition Pushing West: The Photography of Andrew J. Russell.

Members now have the unique opportunity to experience photography as it was 150 years ago. Get your portrait taken with the collodion printmaking process during the Pushing West Member Preview until 5 pm. Sign up for a $15 time slot and receive a portrait session with OMCA’s expert in collodion printmaking, Brittany Bradley. Don’t miss this exclusive Member experience, only at OMCA!
