June 14, 2014 - September 14,
The exhibition will feature over twenty wall-mounted steel sculptures, illustrating the development of a conceptual idea, by the contemporary artist Larry Kagan.

(1882-1967) engaged in the aesthetic of shadows and their primacy in
representation. Hopper's use of shadows is a signature motif of his work
and an integral part of its power to enthrall viewers, emphasizing the
sense of alienation, anonymity, and isolation of the human condition.
The exhibition will feature approximately twenty-five works on paper by
ten artists, primarily etchings on loan from museums, private
collections, and selected from The Hyde’s permanent collection.
Ansel Adams: Later Works from the Collection of Robert and Jane Lewit
March 01, 2014 - September 14, 2014
This exhibition features seven gelatin silver photographs by Ansel Adams on loan from the collection of Robert and Jane Lewit. The photographs were printed ca. 1976-1977 from earlier negatives. The exhibit includes Adams's iconic images "Pine Forest in Snow, Yosemite" (ca. 1932), "Sierra Nevada Winter from Owens Valley" (ca. 1944), and "Redwoods, Bull Creek Flat, Northern California" (ca. 1960). These enlarged, high-contrast photographs printed on glossy paper stock exemplify Adams's late printing style.
