The DIA presents more than 100 black and white photographs made by Ansel Adams throughout the course of his career featuring familiar images and others that are little known and extremely rare. Included are early works from Yosemite ca.1917, soft-focus and romantic Pictorialist photographs from the 1920s (including his first serious landscape series, photographs of Pueblo Indians, and mountain views of the Canadian Rockies), large-format photographs from the 1930s, and Western landscapes of the 1930s through the 1960s. Lesser known works featuring urban and architectural views as well as portraits of his friends Georgia O’Keeffe, John Marin, and Edward Weston are also included. This is a ticketed exhibition. For ticket information call the DIA Box Office at 313.833.4005.

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), one of the premier art museums in the United States, is home to more than 60,000 works that comprise a multicultural survey of human creativity from ancient times through the 21st century. From the first van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum (Self Portrait, 1887), to Diego Rivera's world-renowned Detroit Industry murals (1932–33), the DIA's collection is known for its quality, range and depth.
The DIA is currently undergoing a major renovation, scheduled for completion in late 2007. The museum remains open with a dynamic schedule of programs and activities for all ages. Visitors can enjoy some of the DIA’s “greatest hits” while the museum prepares for an entirely new installation when renovations are completed.
