Maryhill Museum of Art invites residents of Asotin, Benton, Columbia, Franklin, Garfield, Klickitat, and Walla Walla counties to visit FREE during the weekend of August 22 and 23.
Residents of those counties need only present their driver's license to receive complimentary admission. While this is the 17th year Maryhill has offered this incentive to its neighbors, it is especially timely now that many Northwest residents are seeking free and low-cost activities.
"This is a chance to experience the museum and the new exhibits on view," said Colleen Schafroth, Maryhill's executive director. "Visitors can see the special exhibition Ansel Adams: Masterworks as well as the permanent collection, which has something for nearly every taste. European and American paintings, Orthodox icons, and unique chess sets -- which kids especially enjoy -- the renowned Théâtre de la Mode, and a wonderful collection of Native American basketry are just a few of the treasures you'll find at Maryhill."
Ansel Adams is one of the few American artists to become a household name. Ansel Adams: Masterworks features 47 photographs that Adams personally selected as his best work. Included are breathtaking images of Yosemite, where Adams spent many seasons living and working as a youth, National Parks throughout the American West, as well as photographs captured in New Mexico, the Great Smokey Mountains, New York City, Hawaii and on Cape Cod.
The exhibit will be on view through Sept. 13.
The annual Outdoor Sculpture Invitational, on view until October 4, features large-scale works in a variety of media installed throughout the museum's sculpture garden.
