Event Description

Carter members and their guests enjoy the first opportunity to explore Photography Is Art prior to the public exhibition opening! Only a few decades ago, the art community debated whether or not photography merited inclusion in the scope of fine art. Take a closer look at these works, drawn entirely from the Carter’s collection, to better appreciate and understand how the innovative vision of photographers ushered their medium into the American canon of creativity.

Free for members! No registration required. Bring your membership card to the Information Desk for admittance.
