Event Details:

Through powerful, large-scale portraits, Mary Beth Meehan’s photographs challenge us to look again at Silicon Valley and the people who live and work in the region.

Ms. Meehan and Dr. Turner will discuss her Silicon Valley portfolio, her approach to portraiture, and the place of Silicon Valley in America—an essential discussion at a moment when many are reckoning with the social, cultural, environmental, and political impacts of the high tech industry, locally as well as globally.  

A pop-up exhibit of Ms. Meehan’s Silicon Valley portfolio will be on display in the Terrace Room.

The event is part of the American Studies 20/20 event series; supported by the Office of the Vice President for the Arts; and co-sponsored by Stanford University’s Bill Lane Center for the Study of the American West, the Department of Art and Art History, and the Program in Science, Technology & Society.
