One of the most important artists ever born in the region returns this weekend for a free talk.

Duane Michals A Letter from My Father
  • Art by Duane Michals.
  • Duane Michal's "A Letter from My Father"
Michals, born in McKeesport in 1932, went on to pioneer techniques in photography that advanced it as an art form, including writing on photographs and the use of staged and serial imagery.

He's lived in New York City for decades, but returns here frequently, most recently for the Nov. 1 opening of Storyteller: The Photographs of Duane Michals, his massive career retrospective at the Carnegie Museum of Art.

Michals is back this weekend for events including this free artist talk at the Carnegie Lecture Hall. He is known as a candid, engaging speaker.

The talk is at 1 p.m. this Sunday. The lecture hall is located at 4400 Forbes Ave., in Oakland.
