PHOTOGRAPHY

The Palm Springs Art Museum has always been interested in collecting and preserving fine art photography, supported by several important photographic archives. Until recently, the museum’s photography collection was concentrated largely in two areas: celebrity photographs from early eras in Palm Springs and Hollywood and desert photography, featuring the archival holdings of landscape photographer Stephen Willard. Additional holdings focused on contemporary artists, with an emphasis on California. In addition to the major traveling photography exhibitions that will be showcased at the museum on an ongoing basis, photography is integrated into the museum’s permanent collection and thematic exhibitions drawn from the museum’s permanent holdings will be regularly presented. The museum seeks to be a nationally recognized repository for the stewardship of photography holdings.
