The Center for Creative Photography celebrates the 75th anniversary of Arizona Highways by featuring the work of three generations of its photographers in an exhibition titled "Arizona Highways: Celebrating the Tradition, The Photography of Ansel Adams, David Muench, and Jack Dykinga," showing from Saturday, Feb. 19 to Sunday, April 9.
Encouraging a style that has long helped define a popular view of the American West, Arizona Highways has included the works of artists Ted DeGrazia and Frederic Remington; the photography of Josef Muench and Barry Goldwater; the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri; and the creations of Native American artists Harrison Begay and Allan Houser.
In this exhibition, three of the magazine's most important and influential photographers are represented by more than 20 original prints each. Some of the most memorable photographs include original interpretations of Monument Valley, White House Ruins in Canyon de Chelly, the Grand Canyon, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, and Tucson's San Xavier del Bac. Vintage selections from the world-renowned Ansel Adams Archive are highlights of this presentation.
