Ansel Adams: Western Exposure
January 23 – May 4, 2014
Ansel Adams was a visionary figure in nature photography and wilderness preservation. He is seen as an environmental folk hero and a symbol of the American West, especially of Yosemite National Park. Adams’ dedication to wilderness preservation, his commitment to the Sierra Club, and of course his signature black-and-white photographs inspire an appreciation for natural beauty and a strong conservation ethic. This collection of 145 photographs comes from Adams’ personal collection owned by his family. The exhibition will only be seen in two American museums.
