ELKHART — The exhibits “America the Beautiful: The Photographs of Clyde Butcher” and “Ansel Adams: Selected Photographs from the Portfolios” continue through July 16 at the Midwest Museum of American Art, 429 S. Main St.
A new traveling exhibition, “America the Beautiful” gathers 43 photographs of some of the most majestic landscapes in the United States and includes some of Butcher’s monumental images (40×60 inches). A book accompanies the exhibit and is available for purchase.
The Adams exhibit features 17 photographs from the collection of Dr. Rick and Cindy Burns.
Adams (1902-1984) is perhaps the most widely known and beloved photographer in the history of the United States. Adams’s most important work was devoted to what was or appeared to be the country’s remaining fragments of untouched wilderness, especially in national parks and other protected areas of the American West. He was also a vigorous and outspoken leader of the conservation movement.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Admission is $10-$6.
