The President's Photographer: 50 Years Inside the Oval Office
Event details:
September 19, 2014 - January 11, 2015
presidents-photographer
Through both iconic and rarely seen pictures of White House residents and insights from the photographers who chronicled them, visitors will be transported through presidential history, from photos made when the first official presidential photographer was hired in 1963, to today’s unprecedented coverage of Barack Obama. Throughout we are continually reminded of the power of the still image as a tool for understanding our own history.

Hidden/Protected: Paintings by Nina Weiss
Event details:
November 09, 2014 - December 23, 2014
nina-weiss
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods

,

This series of landscape oil paintings by artist Nina Weiss depict nature with colors intense, lush and dramatic. Her work travels beyond traditional ideas of a green landscape, as she teases out the complex colors of nature, creating layers of contrast, line and form. Through her paintings, she celebrates hidden natural landscapes that are often ignored or overlooked in urban environments. Her work provides the viewer with a contemporary look at the traditional genre of landscape.
