    Presented by at RISD Museum of Art

    America in View: Landscape Photography 1865 to Now

    A broad panorama of our country's topographies and correlating narratives, America in View reveals a nation's ambitions and failings, beauty and loss, politics and personal stories through about 150 photographs spanning nearly 150 years.

    Ranging from 19th-century albumen prints documenting the pristine drama of the Western landscape to contemporary digital images that construct newly imagined visions of post-industrial America—the show is drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection. It features objects new to the collection, including major gifts from the late landscape photographer Joe Deal (Provost and Professor, Rhode Island School of Design) and his widow, Betsy Ruppa, as well as gifts from friends and colleagues in Deal’s honor.
