Ansel Adams: Early Works

Special Exhibition Gallery

Ansel Adams: The Early Works | Open in-person and virtually through March 27, 2022
Don't miss the exhibition, "Ansel Adams: Early Works," at the Dunn Museum! Ansel Adams (1902–1984) was a giant in the field of landscape photography. Many viewers are familiar with Adams’ heroic, high-contrast prints from the 1970s. "Ansel Adams: Early Works" focuses on the artist’s masterful, less well-known small prints from the 1920s through 1950s.

By capturing the power of nature, Adams changed our understanding of landscape photography, solidifying it as a legitimate form of modern art. All works are from the private collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. 

Sponsored by the Preservation Foundation of the Lake County Forest Preserves and Dan and Shirley Mayworm. This exhibition is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions, LLC.

NOTE: Virtual exhibit will not open in Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge Legacy.
