The Harn Museum of Art has announced The Mind’s Eye 50 Years of Photography by Jerry Uelsmann an exhibition open June 14, 2011 – September 11, 2011.

Beautiful and surreal, funny and provocative, the photographs of Jerry N. Uelsmann have become icons of American photo history. For sixty years, Uelsmann has been challenging conventional ideas about what photography can and should do. The Mind’s Eye: 50 Years of Photography by Jerry Uelsmann is the first major retrospective exhibition to consider the full range of Uelsmann’s work including his earliest documentary photographs and his experiments with artist books and three-dimensional photo-sculpture.

The exhibition was organized by the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts by PEM Curator of Photography, Phillip Prodger and made possible locally by Michael and Donna Singer, PPI, and TV20, with additional support from the Harn Program Endowment.

The Samuel P. Harn Museum opened in 1990, dedicated to promoting the power of the arts to inspire and educate people and enrich their lives.
