The Ansel Adams exhibition drawn from the Lane Collection that debuted at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts has now traveled to the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. continuing through January 27th. In yesterday’s Washington Post, Blake Gopnik wrote this interesting article on Adams: “The Viewfinder: For Ansel Adams, Nature and Technology Met at the Horizon.”
LECTURE: “Ric Burns on Ansel Adams” Thursday, September 20th, 7 p.m.
From the Corcoran website:
“Ric Burns is among the most engaging speakers I have ever heard. He not only charms an audience with entertainment but enlightens. He can translate the most complex subjects and personalities into vivid narrative. —George Polk Awards for Journalism
One of the most creative and influential documentary filmmakers working today, and 2006 Peabody Award winner, Ric Burns is a profoundly powerful storyteller. His thought-provoking and deeply poetic films have generated a devoted following over the last two decades. In honor of the exhibition Ansel Adams, Mr. Burns comes to the Corcoran to screen his Emmy-Award winning film on the artist, Ansel Adams: A Documentary Film, and discusses the impact of this important photographer.”
A note for those of you in the D.C. area – the exhibition “ANNIE LIEBOWITZ: A Photographer’s Life” will also be on view at the Corcoran from October 13 – January 13th, 2008 – tickets are on sale now.
