Planes, Trains, and AutomobilesFriday January 31, 2014 - Thursday March 6, 2014
The DAC gallery is now closed for Wesleyan's spring break. Recently on view:
The excitement of speed and the metaphor of the machine join in images of airplanes, trains, and automobiles. This exhibition included William Henry Jackson's nineteenth-century celebrations of the railroad in the American West, Jacques-Henri Lartigue's action shots of early French automobile races, and the abandoned Ford cars of Robert Sheehan. Drawn from the permanent collection, the show also featured photographs by Berenice Abbott, Danny Lyon, Walker Evans, Louis Faurer, and Garry Winogrand.
