“Dies Vivendum Est” On Display At Boger Gallery

By: Austin Plummer

The Boger Gallery at College of the Ozarks currently is displaying the exhibition “dies vivendum est.” The exhibit runs through October 11 in the Boger Gallery, located on the ground floor of the Jones Learning Center.

“Dies vivendum est” is an exhibit of the Racela collection of 19th century photography, which ranges primarily from the 1840s to the 1880s. This collection is made up of many forms of early photography including daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes, along with paper albumen prints.

Some of the most powerful photographs in the collection are those from the Civil War. These incredible photographs give us a small view into the lives of the people during this difficult time. Every photograph in the collection is unique and has its own story to tell.

This Boger Gallery event is sponsored by the College of the Ozarks Art Department, and financial assistance is provided by the Missouri Arts Council. Boger Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. weekends. For more information contact Richard Cummings, Boger Gallery Director, at 417-690-2268 or e-mail [email protected].
