Pricing for 19th-century Photography Events in October in NYC

By Alex Novak

I left out a crucial bit of information in the last newsletter on the prices for the various programs next October that are being produced by the Daguerreian Society at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel in New York City near Penn Station. Here's the basic details, but refer to my last month's article on this wonderful program here: http://www.iphotocentral.com/news/article-view.php/235/223/1467/0/0/10.

A one-day symposium on “How the 19th-century Is the Basis for All Subsequent Photographic Art” will be held on Oct. 20th in the Grand Ballroom of the Wyndham. This special program will feature a panel session with top contemporary artists discussing how 19th-century photography and its processes have influenced their work, and presentations by curators and collectors on why they include 19th-century photography along with modern photography in their collections. Prices for the one-day program, which includes a Grand Reception later with heavy hors-d’oeuvres, are: $99 for the early bird rate for Daguerreian Society members and $109 for non-members, and $125 and $135 respectively after 9/30/2016.

Prices for the Annual Conference program, which doesn’t include the pre-conference Symposium, but includes the Grand Reception (with heavy hors-d’oeuvres), Optional Tours (as available), the Conference Program, and the Saturday Dinner and Cocktail Party, are: $250 for the early bird rate for members and $300 non-members, and $275 and $325 respectively after 8/31/2016. The main Annual Conference on 19th-century Photography itself will begin with tours on Wednesday, Oct. 19th (tours are also planned for Sunday, Oct. 23) and a Grand Reception currently is planned on Thursday night, Oct. 20th. The full-day speakers’ program on 19th-century photography will take place on Friday, Oct. 21st.

Society membership starts around $100 for most types of membership. Information on membership and the events, as well as online registration for both, can be found at: http://www.daguerre.org.
