Educator Program: Ansel Adams in Our Time

March 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Webinar and Online Workshop

Ansel Adams in Our Time celebrates the remarkable artistry and visual legacy of the acclaimed American landscape photographer and educator. More than 100 photographs by Adams, from his earliest marketed prints to his world-renowned Western vistas, trace the artist’s development and maturation over five decades while pointing to his continuing influence on landscape photography today. Eighty images by artists working before, during, and after Adams are presented in dialogue with his vintage prints and provide a deeper perspective on themes central to his practice. Works by contemporary artists, such as Wendy Red Star, Will Wilson, Binh Danh, Abelardo Morrell, and Catherine Opie, invite critical conversations on land, identity, and belonging; the meanings of wilderness and the wild; and photography’s role in documenting both the environmental promise and the crises facing the American West today.

Join us for a webinar presentation by Julia Dolan, Ph.D., the Minor White Curator of Photography, followed by an interactive workshop for educators in all subject areas.

Admission is free.
