The Bancroft Gallery
10AM - 4PM, Monday - Friday
Featuring original prints by legendary photographer Ansel Adams, this is an exhibition of rarely-seen images of the University of California System in the 1960s. The images ? commissioned by former UC President Clark Kerr, and published in the 1967 book Fiat Lux which celebrated the educational system's centennial ? offer a rarely seen look at the evolution of the renowned University of California system through the eye of a master photographer best known for his iconic California landscapes. The exhibition also showcases related archival materials about the controversial Kerr himself, and the evolution of his ideas and ideals.
This exhibit accompanies On the Same Page, a program designed to give new UC Berkeley students a theme to talk about. Please visit http://onthesamepage.berkeley.edu to see other associated campus events and activities.
The opening reception will be held on September 27th, 5 - 7 pm. All are invited to attend.
