$10,000 toward Breaking the Frame: Thérèse Bonney and Other Pioneering Women Photojournalists, an exhibition with accompanying catalogue and educational programs, organized by museum curator Carol McCusker. Originally from Syracuse, NY, Bonney traveled to France after WWI and was involved in re-building war-torn Europe through the National Catholic War Council. During the 1920s, she developed artistically, ultimately choosing photography as her field. Her photographs reflect her heroism and devotion to revealing the truth about war and social consciousness.
