East of the Mississippi: Nineteenth-Century American Landscape Photography
March 12 – July 16, 2017
West Building, Ground Floor, Inner Tier

Overview: The first exhibition to focus exclusively on photographs made in the eastern half of the United States during the 19th century, East of the Mississippi showcases some 175 works—from daguerreotypes and stereographs to albumen prints and cyanotypes—as well as several photographers whose efforts have often gone unheralded. Celebrating natural wonders such as Niagara Falls and the White Mountains, as well as capturing a cultural landscape fundamentally altered by industrialization, the Civil War, and tourism, these photographs not only helped shape America’s national identity but also played a role in the emergence of environmentalism.

Organization: The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in association with the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Sponsors: The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Trellis Fund.

Additional funding is kindly provided by Kate and Wes Mitchell.

Passes: Admission is always free and passes are not required

Other venues: New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, October 5, 2017–January 7, 2018
