Education Based Series of Exhibitions continues at MoPA

The Museum of Photographic Art (MoPA) in San Diego, CA will present its second installment in a series of education-related exhibitions titled "Picturing the Process: Landscape Through Time and Space." Lasting from July 12, 2008 to February 1, 2009, the Museum will present 40 works from its collection, arranged in chronological fashion from the earliest landscape photographers of the 19th Century to the contemporary photographic artists seeking to define the Landscape as medium. Featured photographers include (to name a few) Industrial Revolution photographer Carlton Watkins, 20th Century legend Ansel Adams, and contemporary photographer of the Atlantic Joan Myers.

From MoPA's press release:

"The exhibition will present a selection of discrete approaches to landscape photography from the landscape as a representation of beauty, as a means of artistic expressions, and as a forum for political and environmental issues. Each of the photographers represented in the exhibition has attempted to define the landscape while presenting discoveries concerning its structure, beauty, meaning, and future preservation."

Also running at MoPA are "Flesh: Portraits by Gary Schneider," until September 14, 2008; and "Humanitas: Images of India by Fredric Roberts," from May 3 to September 7, 2008. Click here to visit the museum's website.
