Here & Now marks the first survey exhibition of photography drawn solely from the
Mint’s permanent collection
and comprises approximately 215 of the Mint’s most stunning and provocative photographs. Including recent acquisitions and many never-before-seen treasures alongside signature works, Here & Now offers a fresh perspective on an exciting, diverse, and burgeoning area of strength within the Mint’s collection.
While relatively modest in scale, the Mint’s collection boasts exceptional photographs taken at the turn of the 20th century by such noted masters as Berenice Abbott , Ansel Adams , Dorothea Lange , and W. Eugene Smith as well as those taken in the last few years by dynamic contemporary photographers. Global in scope, the Mint’s collection as well as the Here & Now exhibition also feature works by artists with local and regional roots as well, including William Eggleston , Sonia Handelman Meyer , and Kristina Rogers .
Here & Now: 80 Years of Photography at the Mint is generously presented by The Mint Museum of Art Board of Directors with additional support from K&L Gates. Exhibition organized by The Mint Museum.
