Photography Exhibition : Kansas City MO

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is currently having a photography exhibition:

Developing Greatness: The Origins of American Photography, 1839-1885

Among the work shown is one of the earliest known daguerreotypes as well as one of the first snapshots. The exhibit is up through December 30, 2007. There are also some interesting educational programs offered in conjunction with the show.

An added bonus to visiting is the beautiful museum grounds which are part of an outdoor sculpture garden called the Kansas City Sculpture Park. Which does in fact include a gigantic badminton shuttlecock, as seen on the left side of the photo. You can even tour the Sculpture Park online.

  1. Plus the exhibit (which we saw & loved, by the bye) is in the awesome new Bloch Building, which is a work of art in itself. (See reviews in the New Yorker and New York Times.)

Thanks for visiting Heartland. I love hearing from each and every one of you!
