Collection Viewing: Picturing the American Landscape

Join Assistant Curator Allison Grant for a guided viewing of original works from the MoCP’s permanent collection selected for their connection to themes explored in the exhibition Victoria Sambunaris: Taxonomy of a Landscape. The MoCP has a strong collection of works that examine the American landscape and its complex relationship to politics, the consumption of resources, identity, and natural beauty. This session will feature works by artists including Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Terry Evans, Mark Klett, An-My Lê, Richard Misrach, and Eliot Porter.
