#selfie
08/30/2014 to 02/08/2015In 2013, Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the Word of the Year. The use of the word increased 17,000% from January to December 2013. It was not only the use of the word that saw a dramatic jump, selfie images took over our computer and cell phone screens. Estimates suggest that over 18 million selfies are uploaded every week. It seems like everyone who is anyone has posted a selfie somewhere on the internet: Pope Francis, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and political leaders--including British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama. While the culture of social media created the word, selfie, this type of imagery is not new. It is simply the most recent version of a much older artistic standard—the self-portrait. This form of expression, which can be traced back to ancient Greece, has quietly persisted throughout the history of art, only to emerge in our time as the most common type of digital image.

IN LIVING COLOR: ART ON PAPER FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
01/24/2015 to 04/12/2015Delve into the colorful world of abstraction!

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

#selfie
08/30/2014 to 02/08/2015In 2013, Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the Word of the Year. The use of the word increased 17,000% from January to December 2013. It was not only the use of the word that saw a dramatic jump, selfie images took over our computer and cell phone screens. Estimates suggest that over 18 million selfies are uploaded every week. It seems like everyone who is anyone has posted a selfie somewhere on the internet: Pope Francis, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and political leaders--including British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama. While the culture of social media created the word, selfie, this type of imagery is not new. It is simply the most recent version of a much older artistic standard—the self-portrait. This form of expression, which can be traced back to ancient Greece, has quietly persisted throughout the history of art, only to emerge in our time as the most common type of digital image.

#selfie
08/30/2014 to 02/08/2015In 2013, Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the Word of the Year. The use of the word increased 17,000% from January to December 2013. It was not only the use of the word that saw a dramatic jump, selfie images took over our computer and cell phone screens. Estimates suggest that over 18 million selfies are uploaded every week. It seems like everyone who is anyone has posted a selfie somewhere on the internet: Pope Francis, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and political leaders--including British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama. While the culture of social media created the word, selfie, this type of imagery is not new. It is simply the most recent version of a much older artistic standard—the self-portrait. This form of expression, which can be traced back to ancient Greece, has quietly persisted throughout the history of art, only to emerge in our time as the most common type of digital image.

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.
