Ansel Adams: Distance and Detail
January 3 - March 5, 2011
VIEW AMERICA THROUGH THE LENS OF LEGENDARY PHOTOGRAPHER ANSEL ADAMS
Ansel Adams, Distance and Detail, culled from the Bank of America Collection, offers an opportunity to view thirty of Adams’ works including pieces as well known as "Moonrise over Hernandez" alongside his lesser known studies of architectural subjects such as the Spanish Catholic Missions in Arizona. Together with prints ranging in size from an intimate 4x5-inch photograph of Tenaya Lake to the 51x39-inch mural print, "Aspens," the viewer can observe Adams’ careful attention to clarity and detail across an array of subject matter. These photographs, made between 1931 and 1976, provide an in-depth look at the work of one of America’s best known Modernists and folk heroes. This exhibition is provided by Bank of America Art in our Communities™ program.

EXPLORE CONNECTIONS OF CULTURES, FORMS AND IDEAS
This exhibition juxtaposes objects from different cultures into four thematic areas that explore connections of cultures, forms and ideas. Each section explores specific ways that objects connect with people’s lives, past and present; and considers how objects from diverse cultures have served as tools of action, authority, knowledge and tradition.
These objects, admired by many for their workmanship and beauty, are reflections of the inner spirit of the people who made them. Featured in the exhibition are objects primarily from the Americas ranging in date from the second millennium BC to the present. Although they are evidence of a long and rich history it is important to remember that societies are not static. Encounters with new ideas and people ensure that traditions remain vital and relevant.
