Sept. 12-Dec. 12
PURE PHOTOGRAPHY
Pictorial and Modern Photographs from the Syracuse University Art Collection The photographers included in this exhibition have extensive histories that span thematic periods and artistic styles. Taking their cues from Master Photographers like Edward Steichen, artists such as Berenice Abbott and Manuel Álvarez Bravo built on that foundation in order to explore the very art of photography. Utilizing their cameras, they created a new, modern vision for photography with a revised understanding of the camera and its capabilities. No longer tied to a pictorial past, these artists, and others, gave photography its own unique definition as an art form based solely on its ability to capture and create striking images. As a result, they too are considered Master Photographers. Closed Mondays; OPEN – Tuesday-Sunday, 12-4 p.m. The museum will be closed for the Winter Recess: Monday, Dec. 15, re-opening on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015 at 11 a.m.

JUDITH FOX: SEA OF DREAMS
Judith Fox has been focusing her camera on a small stretch of the ocean since 2001. The resulting body of work, Sea of Dreams, speaks to the deep and joyous primal relationship humans have with the sea. This series is divided in two sections, Secret Kingdom— a reflection of the play between the pulling tides, wind and tossed up sand in the space just before the sea meets the land, and Sirens— an allegorical reference to the age-old lure of the sea in which Fox imagines a group of teenagers morphed into Sirens — the beautiful young women whose songs lured sailors to their deaths. Closed Mondays; OPEN – Tuesday-Sunday, 12-4 p.m. The museum will be closed for the Daytona State College Winter Holiday: Dec. 15, re-opening on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015 at 11 a.m.
