>> Exhibit Opening! Ansel Adams: Eloquent Light: After a brief winter hibernation, it’s opening weekend for the latest exhibit at Reynolda House featuring perhaps the best-known photographer in American history. This breathtaking exhibition assembles nearly forty of Ansel Adam’s landmark works. These works have never been on view together and Reynolda House is the exhibition’s only venue. This world-class exhibit runs through July 17th and will include a compelling lineup of events to celebrate its run. Check their calendar of events for more

For all you design lovers … You’re sure to notice the thoughtful branding that is carried throughout this exhibit. From merchandise to the field notebook to gallery wall graphics, the branding is rich with design moments and encourages visitors to take a hands-on approach in exploring the space around them, just like Ansel Adams. Read more about this design collaboration between Reynolda House and Device Creative Collaborative here.
>> Indigo Shibori Dying Workshop: The workshop covers setting up an Indigo Vat and using various Shibori techniques to dye beautiful patterns, as well as a little bit of the Indigo Dye history.
