MONTEREY, CA.- The Monterey Museum of Art is the exclusive U.S. West Coast venue for Ansel Adams: Portrait of America, through October 3, 2010 at the Monterey Museum of Art-La Mirada, located at 720 Via Mirada, Monterey, California.

In 1978, Ansel Adams selected more than 70 images he wished to make available to museums and arts institutions. Although he was able to complete a substantial number of the prints, his death in 1984 curtailed the long-range plans for the project. As a result, only a few complete “Museum Sets” were produced.

“Visitors will experience America through the eyes of this genius in one of Monterey ’s most unique gallery settings-an historic mansion estate, the Monterey Museum of Art-La Mirada,” said the Museum’s Executive Director E. Michael Whittington. “This is a tremendous opportunity to see and experience the essence of some of the greatest natural environments ever captured by a true innovator of our time.”

The Monterey Museum of Art is devoted to the visual arts of California and collects and presents exhibitions on photography, contemporary art, works on paper and Asian art. The Museum was established in 1959 as a chapter of the American Federation of the Arts and is accredited by the American Association of Museums. Over twenty permanent collection and traveling exhibitions are presented annually in two Monterey locations: 559 Pacific Street and 720 Via Mirada. The Museum is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday.
