Ansel Adams at 100

August 4, 2001–January 13, 2002

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ansel Adams — one of San Francisco’s favorite sons — SFMOMA is proud to present an exhibition featuring over 100 images by the beloved photographer and naturalist. Organized for SFMOMA by guest curator John Szarkowski, Ansel Adams at 100 is the first important critical reevaluation of Adams’ art since his death in 1984; the exhibition presents an aesthetic reappraisal of Adams as artist and working photographer, highlighting his achievement as one of the century’s great modern artists.

Ansel Adams at 100 is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Made possible by Hewlett-Packard.
Local sponsors: KRON 4, SF Gate, The Chronicle, and Classical 102.1 KDFC
