About It's an American Thing

Elvis, Fred Astaire, Buster Keaton, hamburgers and Coca-Cola, movie stars and the western landscape, Ella and Louis, Janis and Aretha, Bob Dylan, the beach at Montauk, all comprise a panorama of Americana.

This summer exhibition points to iconic American moments. What is particularly American about these images? The vastness of our landscape, the glamour and mystery of our movie queens, the charm and character of our musicians and the skill of our great photographers, both famous and unknown.

Photographers include Slim Aarons, Harry Benson, Andre de Dienes, Michael Dweck, David Gahr, George Hurrell, David LaChapelle, Steve McCurry, Phil Stern and Alfred Wertheimer, among others.
