Pleasure Grounds and Restoring Spaces Photographs of our National Parks

 June 1 - October 6

 At once a seemingly untouched virgin land and a territory of limitless opportunity for development, the American landscape has always fueled the
imagination of artists. As rapid industrialization began to threaten some of America’s most striking wilderness areas, President Theodore Roosevelt
(1858–1919) and naturalist John Muir (1838–1914) led the urgent call to protect the land on a national scale. Photography was not only an aid to the
cause of conservation but also a way to popularize the newly formed tourist sites, aligning nature with American values. Comprised primarily of photographs
depicting National and State Parks, this exhibition explores the relationships between photographers and the American landscape. The earliest date from
the 1860s, including albumen prints by Carleton Watkins and William H. Jackson, and one of the most recent is a colossal view of the Florida Everglades
by Clyde Butcher.

 

Ongoing
Sitter and Subject in Nineteenth-Century Photography

In conjunction with the 23rd Daguerreian Society Annual Symposium to be held in St. Petersburg October 27-30, this exhibition features some
60 nineteenth-century daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes. It addresses several facets of the public’s insatiable appetite for portraits of loved ones
and strangers alike. Flawless artistic and studio portraits will be on view. Highlights include a rare portrait of James Cutting, the inventor of the ambrotype,
by Mathew Brady and a pair of important full-plate daguerreotype portraits by Southworth and Hawes on loan from The Dandrew-Drapkin Collection. One
features the statesman Daniel Webster, the other, Alvin Adams, the shipping magnate whose company later became American Express. Other formal portraits
of sitters are an elegant likeness of a lady by John Jabez Edwin Mayall and a playful photograph of Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky by Alphonse Plumier.
In contrast to these formal portraits, the exhibition also presents images of anonymous subjects, mainly workers and models made by unknown “operators.”

Witness to War: WWII Photographs from the Collections of Veterans

June 21 - October 27

Witness to Waris an exhibition of photographs from The Ringling Museum’s permanent collection and the Institute on World War II and the
Human Experience at Florida State University.  It honors U.S. veterans through a gripping visual account of WWII via the lenses of soldier-photographers
who documented their first-hand experiences at war.  Comprised of snapshots, candid portraits, and pictures documenting action on the front lines, the
photographs from these personal collections gifted by veterans offer us a unique historical perspective of WWII from individual servicemen, a perspective
not always in step with officially sanctioned press photographs from the era, or the more iconic World War II photographs that have come to symbolize
the War in the public’s consciousness.

 

No current special photography exhibits; however there is a permanent collection of photographic works.
