The Art Shay: In Action exhibit, located in Crossman Gallery, is a selection of 50 prints from Chicago photographer Art Shay. The prints serve a chronological tour through mid-century American Life. Shay was a U.S. Eighth Air Force navigator during World War II. After the war he worked for Life magazine as a staff reporter, before leaving to become a freelance photographer. His photographs have been featured in major magazines including Time, Life, Fortune and Sports Illustrated. Art Shay: In Action is the first exhibit since Shay’s death at age 96 earlier this year. The exhibit will run until Nov. 17.
