Now – 2/21: Masters of Photography: The Garner Collection 

Masters of Photography: The Garner Collection features more than 100 works spanning major photographic movements that are diverse in subject, style and technique. Made possible by a loan from prolific collectors, Cam and Wanda Garner, the exhibition includes works from many of the most influential photographers in the medium’s history. Some major names include Ansel Adams, Frank Eugene, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and many more. 


The exhibition was originally installed in November 2020, but was forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, the Garners donated over 300 works from photographic giants such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mary Ellen Mark, Berenice Abbott, Minor White, and Margaret Bourke-White. These important additions represent a significant expansion of the Museum’s holdings of photography. A number of works from this gift will be on view in the exhibition.

On view November 20, 2021 through February 21, 2022
