I know I am excited, The Toledo Museum of Art is already one of my favirte places to and spend time but this will be a fascinating experience.
The only other museum's that I have been to that i enjoyed as much was the Salavdor Dali museum, and the MoMA in NYC.
If you have never been to Toledo Museum of Art and live in the midwest or just like museums, please take a look http://www.toledomuseum.org/
Ansel Adams: Visions of the West
Toledo, Ohio—Experience both the majestic beauty of the American West landscape and the artistic mastery of the photographic process in the Toledo Museum of Art’s exhibition Ansel Adams: Visions of the West, opening June 30, 2006. This intimate exhibition of 39 works of art consists of photographs from the Toledo Museum of Art’s collection, as well as loans from private collectors. Highlights include Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, ElCapitan, Winter, and one of Adams’ most legendary images Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico.
Ansel Adams (1902–1984) produced more than 40,000 photographs during his career of more than 60 years. Possibly the most honored photographer in United States history, Adams received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1980. The medal’s dedication reads in part, “At one with the power of the American landscape, and renowned for the patient skills and timeless beauty of his work.”
