7 Feb, 2009 - 25 Jul, 2009
As part of an ongoing series of education-based exhibitions, The Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) will be presenting an exhibition entitled, Picturing the Process: Exploring the Art and Science of Photography. The Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century brought thousands of commercial and scientific innovations, including photography. Since its infancy, a number of inventors and discoveries have led to the modern state of photography. Utilizing MoPA’s permanent collection, this exhibition will examine the ever growing relationship between the field science and the art of photography. Comprised of innovators of the medium, both famous and unknown, this exhibition will include photographic works from the mid-nineteenth to the early twenty-first century.
