I came upon these great photos taken by Wallace Kirkland for Life magazine on the blog of MissMoss.
The photo essay shows scenes from a summer art school in 1948.
Do you know that the school in question still exists!
OxBow is situated in the Saugatuck area of Michigan, and was established over a century ago.
“Founded by Frederick Fursman and Walter Marshall Clute, artists from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago …
… Ox-Bow was to serve as a respite for artists from the industrializing havoc of Chicago …
… Today, Ox-Bow’s longevity is due to the strength of this mission and the artists who have held true to it.”
