Ansel Adams, Lodgepole Pines, Lyell Fork of the Merced River, Yosemite National Park, California , 1923.

Collections Come to Light: Nasher Museum of Art and Duke Gardens - 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Join us for a special afternoon to combine your love for art, photography, horticulture and landscapes. Curators will take us through several of the new galleries at the Nasher Museum, followed by activities at Duke Gardens. The New Galleries: A Collection Come to Light is a comprehensive and dynamic reinstallation of the Nasher Museum’s collection. We will focus on an installation of Ansel Adams photography and galleries featuring European art. At Duke Gardens you have a choice between a photography walk, emphasizing the techniques of Ansel Adams, or a garden design walk that translates design strategies from paintings into the landscape with ideas you can use in your own gardens.
