View Full Version : Salgado Exhibit in Austin Texas
Just thought some of the other Texas members might want to know about this upcoming show. Salgado's Workers will be at the Austin Museum of Art starting in Nov. 15th..
Very good then, I'll go see it.
Great news! I hadn't heard anything about it so it came as a surprise.
Thanks for letting us now.
Let me add that the Salgado show at AMOA is partially sponsored by the Austin Center for Photography.
ACP is a fledgling organization that I founded this year. ACP now consists of a core board of excited and well-connected Austinites who share a common vision.
The long-term plans for ACP are quite grand -- and will take years to materialize in full -- our partial sponsorship of this important exhibition is our first step onto the public stage.
Our web site (www.visitacp.org) and e-mail will be online within a couple of weeks. We will be announcing more about our plans and other events in the coming weeks and months.
I invite any RFF readers who may be interested in ACP to write me and I'll answer your questions, invite you to volunteer, and add you to the ACP mailing list.
I've seen the exhibit elsewhere, and it's worth the trip (a trip to Austin is well worth it under normal circumstances, so this would be extra worth it, wouldn't it?). The book is a work of art, but there's nothing like seeing the photos on the wall.
If you can't make it to Austin, the new (Oct. 30) Rolling Stone has a portfolio of some of Salgado's new stuff from Ethiopia, part of his Genesis project. Great photos, and full marks to RS for giving them a nice layout.
Thanks for the heads up RFFers :cool: Worth the trip to Austin for a look see.
