Through July 24, 2011
Six photographs from Beahan’s series, “Photographs from Home,” are on exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC. You can see the photographs in the Smithsonian collection.
“Close to Home presents photographs made during the past three decades by both established and emerging artists. It features thirty-two color and black-and-white photographs from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection by nine contemporary photographers: Tina Barney, Virginia Beahan, Christopher Dawson, Muriel Hasbun, Martina Lopez, Elaine O’Neil, Larry Sultan, Margaret Strickland, and Carrie Will. The exhibition includes many new acquisitions, which will be on view at the museum for the first time. Toby Jurovics, formerly the museum’s curator of photography, selected the photographs in the installation.”
