For more than 40 years, Robert Adams’s photographs have celebrated the beauty of the American West, often focusing his attention on overlooked subjects and vistas: the quiet streets of small towns, the wide-open prairies of the eastern plains, or the unexpected junctures when wilderness and urban development meet. Adams taught English at Colorado College from 1962 to 1970 when he left the college to become a full-time photographer. Adams’s photographs are held in several major museum collections, including the Denver Art Museum, The National Gallery, Yale University, and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. A major retrospective exhibition, The Place We Live, organized by Yale University, is currently on tour, with venues in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Exhibition Hours: From April 22-May 14, 2013: Monday-Saturday, 1-7 p.m.; From May 23-June 15: Tuesday-Saturday, 1-7 p.m., Closed May 15-22.
