    Just a reminder to anyone in the Kansas City vicinity, June 9th the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum is opening their Bloch buildings. Inside they have the Hallmark Photographic Collection, something I've been waiting to see for a very long time now!

    Here's some info about it from their website (http://www.nelson-atkins.org/art/Photography.cfm):

    An additional exhibit is being shown as well, "Developing Greatness: The Origins of American Photography, 1839-1885."

    Enjoy!! I'm really excited that a Kansas City museum is finally going to have a large photo collection, especially one of this calibur.

    Thanks for the post. KC is only 3 hours away. I see a trip south in my future.
