Crow Museum of Asian Art presents Carolyn Brown and Palmyra: "An Ancient City Through the Lens" opening day
Showcasing powerfully relevant photography of Palmyra from 1989, the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History of The University of Texas at Dallas will present Carolyn Brown and Palmyra: "An Ancient City Through the Lens."
A Dallas-based photographer, Brown is renowned for her brilliantly composed images of architecture, portraying both the beauty and distinct character of the built environment, while also emphasizing human presence and cultural heritage.
This exhibition will feature 12 of her large-scale photographs documenting Palmyra (located in present-day Syria) from her travels 32 years ago. Through these works, the exhibition aims to investigate notions of cultural heritage at this site specifically but also in a larger global context.
The exhibition will remain on display through January 2, 2022.
