WI museum features color photos in 20th century


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) – An exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum will display the evolution of color photography in the 20th century.

The exhibit will explore the historical developments from 1907 to 1981 that led to color photography becoming the norm in popular culture and fine art.

The exhibit, called "Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America," runs Feb. 22 through May 19.

The Milwaukee Art Museum will feature about 200 objects that range from framed photographs and slide shows to film clips and publications.  Nearly a dozen artists, including Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan and Saul Leiter, will contribute to the exhibit.

Exhibition co-curator Lisa Hostetler, who is former curator of photographs at the Milwaukee museum, says the years mark the introduction of the first commercially available color photographic process.
