Ansel Adams Exhibit on Display at UVA's Fralin Museum

Posted: Updated:

If you are looking for indoor activities during the holiday weekend, there's a famous exhibit at the University of Virginia's Fralin Museum of Art you might want to see. On display are almost 50 originals from iconic photographer Ansel Adams.

Adams is best known for his dramatic black-and-white landscape shots of Yosemite National Park and the American West.

"There are also much more intimate views, in addition to the mountainscapes and soaring views. We have wonderful details of water, of rock, of grasses," said Jennifer Farrell, curator at the Fralin Museum of Art.

The collection is so large the museum is showing it in two installments.

The exhibit runs from June 7 to October 13. The museum is open from Tuesday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, click here.
