The new exhibit of color photography, appropriately titled "Color Rush," opened last night at the Milwaukee Art Museum and is already receiving rave reviews (check out Art City, Third Coast Digest and OnMilwaukee.) Kudos for this tour de force go to MAM's former curator of photography, Lisa Hostetler, along with Katherine Bussard, who is associate curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago. The museum was packed. Two talks about the show were given yesterday and both sold out. It's great to see so many people interested in art, especially photography!
I agree that it's a wonderful show and I don't feel the need to add to what others are saying about it.
However, as a contributor to Art City I was able to interview the new curator of photography, whose name also happens to be Lisa. It was posted today to coincide with the new exhibit opening. I invite you to read my interview: Art City Asks: Lisa Sutcliffe. (Art City Asks is a regular feature of Art City.)
