Ansel Adams: Awing Eyes Yet Again

Posted in 1, arT, DMV, News by msdisdain on March 27, 2010

Ansel Adams was commissioned in 1941 by then Secretary of the Interior Ickes to create murals of areas controlled by the Interior. The photos were shelved shortly after the attacks on Pearl Harbor starting the US involvement in WWII. Seventy years later, 26 of them are finally being displayed in an exhibition (by reservation only) in DC. Since it is rather difficult for the average Joe (too soon?) to access these beautiful murals, these prints are now available for public viewing online at the Department of the Interior Website . These photos are spectacular. Ansel Adams: Awing Eyes Yet Again!
