    Location Correction

    The show will be at the Taft Museum in Cincinnati. Not the Art Museum.

    Sorry for the error

    You should go John! In addition to the museums and Eden park and its Victorian architecture and the botanical garden, there is the interesting old blue bridge and waterfront, and the crown jewel in my opinion: a grand art deco building, the union railroad terminal. Many nice things in Cincy.

    Choo choo?

    How does my veggie-mobile sound? Then we can visit my cabin, and have transportation when we get wherever we're going.

    There are a bunch of us in the area who are interested in seeing the show. Maybe we can arrange to have an APUG get together in Cinci.

    Best,
    Daniel

    This version of TruthBeauty, originally organized in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery, has been edited for travel. The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated 160-page color catalogue, published by the Vancouver Art Gallery and available directly from Vancouver Art Gallery.

    I wrote to Eastman house to see if they had a scedule of presentation. Here is the reply.

    "I'm pleased to hear that! Please find the schedule for TruthBeauty
    below. Please note that after the engagements listed here, the show
    will be retired due to the fragile nature of the objects.

    Thanks and best wishes,
    Leeann

    February 3 – May 2, 2010: The McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, TX
    May 21 – August 8, 2010: Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, OH
    October 9, 2010 – January 9, 2011: The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC"

    Thanks to Leeann: looks like cincinnati or Washington for me.

    Just returned from seeing the show, possibly the best 8 dollars I have ever spent.

    I saw the show a few weeks ago. Very nice even if it doesnt contain all the images from the book.

    They are sponsoring some lectures and photo events in conjunction with the show. Contact the Taft Museum for details.

    The museum is free on Sundays!
