10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon., Wed.-Sun. (closed Tue.) Oct. 22-March 20. This photography exhibition focuses on two titans of American culture: photographer Edward Weston and poet Walt Whitman. In 1944, Weston and his wife traveled across country taking photographs that would illustrate Leaves of Grass, a collection of Whitman’s poems. The book was deemed a failure and these photographs fell into obscurity. 25 of these photos are on display and show why Weston viewed them as among his best work.
