KARSH PHOTOGRAPHS AT KALAMAZOO INSTITUTE OF ARTS
I just learned that 100 Yousef Karsh photographs from the Art Institute of Chicago's collection will be on exhibit at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Kalamazoo, Michigan from July 9 through September 3, 2011.
Here is a description of the exhibit from the KIA web site: (http://www.kiarts.org/index.php)
Throughout his long career, Karsh put aside a selection of his own favorite prints of his favorite subjects that are now in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. This exhibition contains 100 prints drawn from that collection, accompanied by a catalogue with essay by David Travis, exhibition curator and former Chair and Curator of Photography, The Art Institute of Chicago. This exhibition tour is organized by Curatorial Assistance, Pasadena, California.
This sounds like a great opportunity for those of us in the midwest US to see some wonderful portraits, and I wanted to make other Apuggers aware of this exhibit.
