New York New York: Photographs from the Museum Collection

New York New York Photographs from the Museum Collection

This exhibition of photographs from UMMA’s permanent collection celebrates the splendor of the Big Apple. Among images featured are Berenice Abbott’s and Sam Falk’s black and white bird’s eye views of the city’s monumental architecture as seen at night. Vincent Serbin used collaged negatives to create his layered photograph of Wollman Skating Rink, Central Park’s seasonal recreational gem. The bustle and multi-colored lights of Times Square are depicted in a panoramic light box image by Argentinean photographer Esteban Pastorino. Also included in the selection are several works by Pop Art master Andy Warhol, whose photographs captured mundane street scenes throughout his beloved “city that never sleeps.”
