The Working Class Eye of Milton Rogovin, Gage Gallery, Roosevelt University

The Working-Class Eye of Milton Rogovin is at Roosevelt University's Gage Gallery through June 30, 2011.

Buffalo, New York-based photographer, Milton Rogovin, 101, had died just two days before the long-planned exhibition, turning the celebration of his art into a celebration of his life.

Exhibit curator and gallery director Michael Ensdorf said the opening is a "celebration of Milton's rich and long life. He said tributes from all over the world came pouring in for Rogovin, on Twitter, Facebook, New York Times, NPR and the Library of Congress blog.

Mark Rogovin, an artist and activist whose accomplishments include founding The Peace Museum, was visibly moved by the outpouring of support, while mourning the death of his father.
