A new exhibit at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park traces the history of photography with a selection of iconic images from one of the first major corporate collections.
“Moment in Time” presents images by Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Imogen Cunningham, Robert Frank, Dorothea Lange and many more.
The images are from an art collection that began in 1967, when the president of former Exchange National Bank in Chicago asked renowned art historians Beaumont and Nancy Newhall to assemble the photographs.
The bank became part of Bank of America, which now owns the collection and is a sponsor of the San Diego exhibition.
“The arts enrich our communities, celebrate the past and inspire our future,” said Rick Bregman San Diego market president for Bank of America. “We’re proud to partner with the Museum of Photographic Arts by lending pieces from our Bank of America Collection for the benefit of all visitors. By sharing these intriguing photographic works, we hope to foster great learning and inspiration.”
“Moment in Time” runs through Sept. 23. The museum, one of just three independent photography museums in the United States, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
