Following the museum’s 2011 exhibition Cloudscapes: Photographs from the Collection, this exhibition highlights photographs of water from the museum’s permanent collection.

The exhibition includes more than thirty works by a variety of photographers – including Wynn Bullock, Paul Caponigro, Linda Connor, and Eliot Porter -- who have been inspired by this substance that sustains us and is so valuable to planet Earth.

Selections range from Ansel Adams’s dramatic black-and-white photograph of Bridalveil Fall (the famous cataract in Yosemite National Park) to Miguel Gandert’s image of kids cooling off in a fountain at First Plaza in Albuquerque.

Lisette Model’s famous image of a delighted bather at Coney Island Beach represents the joyous side of human interactions with water, while David Ondrik’s photograph Please Add Water – a view of the marina at Elephant Butte Lake – emphasizes a more complicated aspect of that relationship
