Painters, photographers and ceramists alike have found inspiration in the landscape, drawing on the natural world as a subject, metaphor and creative force. Taking a generous approach to interpreting the genre, this exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of works from the Everson’s collection that highlights landscapes’ enduring hold on the human imagination. Featured are well-known works by Andrew Wyeth and Ansel Adams as well as little-seen pieces by Robert Arneson, Kenzo Okada, Laura Gilpin and others.

Presented by M+T Bank For more than seventy years, Helen Levitt used her camera to capture fresh and unstudied views of everyday life in the streets of New York City. Levitt’s photographs, in both black and white and color, document neighborhood matriarchs on their front stoops, pedestrians negotiating New York’s busy sidewalks, and boisterous children at play. In her work, Levitt successfully captures people of every age, race and class, without attempting to impose social commentary. The exhibition features a range of photographs spanning Levitt’s long career, and includes scenes shot in New York City, New Hampshire and Mexico. Helen Levitt: In the Streetis organized by Telfair Museums, Savannah, Georgia. This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Mrs. Robert O. Levitt.
