Photography from the Museum Collection

06/08/2012 to 08/05/2012
Organized by the Museum

These focused exhibitions will engage key moments in the history of photography, explore the development of the medium, and highlight important pieces from UVaM's rich collection of photographs. Photography from the Museum Collection will be on view during Charlottesville's LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph, which runs from June 7-9. These exhibitions build on 100 Years of Photography, the photography displays that accompany academic curator and professor Matthew Affron's spring semester course The History of Photography. The wide variety of works on view, which show diverse photographic practices and approaches to the medium, will afford students, faculty, and community members a rare opportunity to see photographs created by both pioneers of the medium and contemporary artists.

UVaM programming made possible by the generous support of The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Albemarle Magazine, The Hook, and Ivy Publications LLC's Charlottesville Welcome Book.
