Creating Camelot and Ansel Adams Exhibits at The Booth Museum

Creating Camelot and Ansel Adams Exhibits at The Booth Museum

What defines America? Freedom, the Wild West, and our Presidents? Or maybe it’s the vast mountain ranges, fields of grain, and coastal shores. The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia displays the answer in iconic images, sculpture, and paintings. Two special exhibitions this summer include some of the most notable images in U.S. history.

Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe portrays President John F. Kennedy and his family in private and public times before and during his time in The White House. The exhibit also has a unique story that might have ended with the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. See it before August 27, 2017.

Ansel Adams: The Masterworks includes 30 photographs that became known as The Museum Set because they were often displayed individually in museums and were selected, printed, and signed by the renowned photographer as his best works. The Booth Western Art Museum has the distinguished honor of being the first to display all 30 images collectively.

Adams’ subject matter, the magnificent natural beauty of the West, was absolutely, unmistakably American, and his chosen instrument, the camera, was a quintessential artifact of the twentieth-century culture,” wrote John Swarkowski in the introduction to Adams’ Classic Images (1985). See America at its best in this special exhibit on display at the Booth Museum now through October 29, 2017.
