Mark your calendars! Lauren Greenfield is coming to speak about her latest project, Generation Wealth. Since the 1990s Greenfield has been documenting the "influence of affluence" and how the American Dream evolved from "Keeping up with the Jones' to Keeping up with the Kardashians".

Colorful, sad, humorous, and outrageous, her photographs give us access to pivotal moments which led to a culture that highly values the currencies of beauty, youth, fame, and celebrity. Greenfield draws insights from her related photo series and films (THIN, Girl Culture, kids+money, The Queen of Versailles), and makes comparisons to lifestyles around the world.

Don't let FOMO set in. Register Today!

Bonus! Lauren Greenfield will be signing books after her talk. So bring yours or purchase one there!
