Museum Exhibit Examines the Environment through Modern and Contemporary Photography

August 1, 2017

Land and Lens: Photographers Envision the Environment is an exhibition that has been several years in the making. Featuring seventy-one images spanning the mid-nineteenth century to the present day, the works on view come primarily from the Museum’s rich holdings of historic and contemporary photography. Among the wide range of artists represented are historic figures Ansel Adams, Arthur Rothstein, Eliot Porter and Alfred Stieglitz, as well as many contemporaries. Among these Jamie Stillings, Richard Misrach, David Maisel, James Balog, and Edward Burtynsky are well known for their concerned image-making.

Collector Charles Moffett—a Middlebury alumnus from the Class of 1967 and one of the most highly regarded world authorities on Impressionism—and Lucinda Herrick, his widow, have given and bequeathed some seventy-five works of art to the Middlebury College Museum of Art. Those works, as varied and engaging as Moffett’s broad interests, are the subject of the exhibition A Story of Art, which opens at the Museum on Tuesday, September 5.
