Summer Vacation: Photographs from the Collection

May 13–September 10, 2006

Summertime! Long days, hot pavement, loud music... Summer stirs up memories of the smell of cut grass, the sound of ice clinking in a glass, and the sensation of cool water on bare toes. This exhibition of more than fifty works from the Museum's considerable collection of photographs reflects the sizzle of the summer season from a variety of perspectives.

A selection of sailors, swimmers, and sunbathers are featured in pictures by Harry Callahan, Elliott Erwitt, David Graham, and Ray K. Metzker, while the pleasures of the playground, pick-up baseball, bike riding, and gardening are seen in the photographs of William Klein, George Krause, William Larson, and Danny Lyon. Camp, carnivals, cookouts, and company picnics are also depicted in works by Robert Adams, Barbara Morgan, and Burk Uzzle. This exhibition is a perfect way to kick off your own summer celebration.
