ASMP-DC Presents

Ideas Over Easy: Field Trip to NGA

This event has passed. Its description is archived below.

Join ASMPDC for a visit to the "Harry Callahan at 100" exhibition at the National Gallery of Art.

We will meet at the entrance to the exhibition in the West Building at 10 AM and will go through the exhibit for an hour or so. Then we'll meet up at the Cascade Cafe (East Building, Concourse near the waterfall) at 11AM to have a snack and discuss the show. This will be an informal event; a chance to get away from the computer and look at art.

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) was one of the most innovative and influential photographers of the 20th century. Celebrating the centenary of his birth, the exhibition of some 100 photographs explores all facets of Callahan's art, from its genesis in Detroit in the early 1940s and its flowering in Chicago in the late 1940s and 1950s to its maturation in Providence and Atlanta from the 1960s through the 1990s. Throughout his long career, he repeatedly found new ways of looking at and presenting the world in photographs that are elegant, visually daring, and highly experimental. NGA Callahan site
