For the Birds celebrates the rich diversity of avian art in the Toledo Museum of Art’s permanent collection, delighting both art and nature lovers alike. Free admission.
April 20–Aug. 5, 2012, Works on Paper Galleries
Refraction and reflection both involve changes in light waves, and both affect how we see an image. With light, shape is realized, textures arise, color becomes, and line is defined. This exhibition of 100 photographs from the TMA collection focuses on themes of light, shadow, and reflection. Photographic images from the beginnings of the medium in the nineteenth century through contemporary times will be displayed. Among the artists represented are Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Eugene Atget, Imogen Cunningham, Robert Frank, Adam Fuss, Nadar, Man Ray, Edward Steichen, and Alfred Stieglitz. Free admission.
