Over the past year I’ve been hearing a lot about the new photography center that is coming to LA, and found this article that will be of interest to all of you, LA-based or not. The commitment of the Annenberg Foundation to photography is outstanding; the Foundation was instrumental in bringing the Marjorie and Leonard Vernon Collection to LACMA, the largest gift of photographs in the museum’s history (selections from the Vernon Collection on view through February 1, not to be missed). I met Patricia Lanza, Talent and Content Manager at last spring’s Palm Springs Photo Festival, and with Pat guiding programming with guest curators (Anne Wilkes Tucker is serving as Special Advisor for the inaugural exhibition) it is going to be an exciting new venue for all to enjoy. I look forward to posting notices of activities at launch and beyond.
