Join MOPA’s curatorial department for this seasonal series that links the Museum’s permanent collection with our exhibitions, by allowing members the opportunity to view original works in MOPA’s print viewing room. 

Visitors will have an opportunity to meet with the curatorial staff in an informal event while seeing unique items from artists who are connected to Aperture magazine in the permanent collection. Connecting to Collections day is held in conjunction with the current exhibition Aperture remix, and expands on the theme by looking at work from seminal photographers in the medium such as Ansel Adams, Richard Misrach, Nancy Newhall, Minor White, and more. Visitors will also have an opportunity to see a selection of books in the Edmund L. and Nancy K. Dubois Library as part of the experience.
