Ansel Adams: The Masterworks
This exhibition includes 32 black and white gelatin silver prints, spanning four decades of photography. The Masterworks showcases the skill and talent through which Ansel Adams captured the majesty of National Parks, the unique peoples of New Mexico and the ever-changing landscapes of America. Masterworks contains some of Adams’ most well-known images, such as Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico; Aspens, Northern New Mexico; and Winter Sunrise, The Sierra Nevada. This exhibition invites the viewer to see and feel how Adams experienced America—a place of vast natural wonder, breathtaking beauty and worthy of environmental protection. 

“Beauty is at the heart of this exhibition; it serves as an opportunity for us to connect with the awe-inspiring natural beauty found all over this country, lifting us out of the day-to-day,” said Laura Hine, Executive Director.
