Curry College is hosting “Aftermath,” a photo exhibit on the Boston Marathon bombings to reflect on the tragedy in the months leading up to the first anniversary. “Knowing the anniversary of the bombings is coming up in April, I thought that was an important exhibit to bring to the school,” said professor Laurie Alpert of the Department of Fine and Applied Arts. The exhibit, up through April 16, showcases photographs of former Curry faculty member Joshua Touster. Days after the bombings, Touter began photographing the Boylston Street memorials. He then documented the lockdown in his hometown of Watertown as well as the celebration of the second bombing suspect’s arrest. Alpert called the images “powerful and moving.” Touster will give a lecture on the exhibit Feb. 6 at 1 p.m. at the Student Center.
