Rediscover and celebrate the work of Anne Brigman

In 2018, the Nevada Museum of Art organized a major exhibition featuring the photography and poetry of Anne Brigman (1869-1950), who was best known for her groundbreaking work in the Sierra Nevada in the early 1900s.

Anne Brigman: A Visionary in Modern Photography, was slated to open in New York City at the Grey Art Gallery at New York University last month. Unfortunately, the world had other plans. 

Nevertheless, this occasion has once again drawn attention to this visionary of modern photography. From a major article by an internationally acclaimed magazine to a reprint of the book and a new documentary, there is lots of exciting Brigman news to share.

In the Press: The New Yorker

Recently, The New Yorker published a “Photo Booth” celebrating the photography of Anne Brigman that features a thoughtful essay by Sarah Blackwood, a writer specializing in nineteenth-century American literature and visual culture. 

Revisit the art hike

During the 2018 exhibition, Museum guests joined artists, musicians, dancers, and poets near Donner Pass for an unforgettable 2-mile art hike organized by Trails & Vistas, an art-in-nature nonprofit.
