Snapshot 2004–2014: Selections from a Decade of Photography Acquisitions
June 21 through August 24, 2014
In celebration of 25 years in Blount Cultural Park, the Museum is highlighting extraordinary works from our collection through a series of exhibitions. Over the past decade, the MMFA has grown our collection of photographs through both gifts and purchases. Snap Shot 2004–2014: Selections from a Decade of Photography Acquisitions brings forward images that are already old favorites alongside others that are making their debut in the galleries with this exhibition. From Nancy Marshall’s Windsor Ruins, 2000 which we acquired in 2004 to our newest acquisition, Andy Warhol’s Little Red Book F126, Album, 1972, and many in-between, this grouping of works demonstrate the Museum’s commitment to expanding our photography collection which spans a variety of themes: architectural, conceptual, documentary, landscape, and portraiture—all by noted and accomplished artists.
