Information about the “New Visions” show:

In a unique collaboration, three of the leading art and educational institutions in the Lehigh Valley–the Allentown Art Museum, Lafayette College and Lehigh University–will present complementary exhibitions showcasing powerful examples of contemporary photography drawn from the outstanding collection of Arthur and Anne Goldstein. The exhibitions, comprising over 100 superb works in total, will include some of the most important names in contemporary photography, as well as exciting new artists.

Each institution has taken one of the major themes in contemporary photography today for exploration, and connections and distinctions among the three exhibitions will be emphasized as the themes are explored. “Imagination” will be the theme of the installation at the Allentown Art Museum; “Identity” at Lehigh University (exhibition dates August 29–November 1, 2009); and “Memory” at Lafayette College (August 27–October 18, 2009).
