Stanford Arts Residency
In the Fall of 2018, Mary Beth was the Artist in Residence at Stanford University, researching the community of Silicon Valley, and leading a Master Class in the Department of Fine Arts. That work is ongoing.
Simultaneously overpowering and intimate, Mary Beth Meehan’s urban portraits give us an opportunity to see each other. The vertical-sized billboards elevate her fellow Americans onto the sides of buildings throughout downtown Providence. A print of Bidur, pictured below, was added recently to the series. We’ve asked fellow photographers Josephine Sittenfeld and Thad Russell to moderate a discussion with Mary Beth about the project, public art, the state of photography in Providence, and wherever else the conversation leads. Please join us.
