Spencer Museum of Art The University of Kansas


  • The Obvious and Beyond: Photographs from the Spencer Museum Collection
  • 11-Oct-1992 - 20-Dec-1992
  • South Balcony, Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas

The photographs were selected to show the wide range encompassed by photographic vision; the organization of photographs in the exhibition invites the viewer to make comparisons within narrower ranges of subject matter. The purpose of this exhibition can be posed as the question:

How do we ascribe meaning to, or interpret, a photograph?
