On view in the Frank Photography Gallery from June 30-October 29, 2023
I have been visiting the Chrysler Museum of Art since I was a small child, yet it wouldn't be accurate to call having an exhibition there a childhood dream because it never occurred to me that something like that would be possible. I am so honored that Chelsea Pierce, the McKinnon Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and the other leadership of the museum have given me this opportunity. It means a lot more that the first comprehensive museum exhibition of this work is at my home museum, where I have history and where I can share the experience with the regional community that has shaped me as an artist.
For more information about the show you can read the press release below or visit the exhibition page on the museums website.
