An exhibit of "more than 100" Adams prints will be on display from April 8 until June 10 at the Brauer Museum of Art on the campus of Valparaiso University (in northwest Indiana, about one hour southeast of Chicago). The exhibit has been organized by The Friends of Photography, and the prints were made BY Adams, not by others from his negatives.
In addition to the exhibit, there will be some interesting related presentations, most of which I think are free admission:
On April 8 at 2 p.m. Andy Grundberg, esteemed art critic at the NYTimes and the show's curator, will provide an overview of the exhibit.
On April 18 at 7 p.m. unsharp-masking guru (and photographer extraordinaire) Howard Bond will talk about Adams' influence on photography (and, I believe, on Bond's own artistic development).
On April 22 at 2 p.m. (Neils Science Center) Joel Snyder, professor of art history at the University of Chicago, will speak on "Nineteenth-Century Landscape Photography and Westward Expansion."
For directions see Valparaiso University's website (www.valpo.edu). The flyer I received says "for info on guest lectures and gallery talks call 219.464.5365; for museum hours call 219.462.6874."
Of course, this forum's own Sean Yates can provide additional sightseeing tips for the region....
