This exhibition consisted of selections from a recent and very generous gift of forty-nine contemporary photographs from the collection of Dr. William, ND ’65, and Ann Marie McGraw of Indianapolis. The donation includes examples by some of the most important artists of the recent period, including Sally Mann, Shelby Lee Adams, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Richard Misrach, Terry Evans, Abelardo Morrell, and Michael Kenna. Many of the artists are new to the collection, such as Martina Lopez, Keith Carter, James Fee, and Rocky Schenck. The styles range from straight documentation to surrealism.
