Still Looking: The Photography Collection of Carol Beesley Hennagin

June 27th, 2018 All Day - December 30th, 2018

Through December 30  Still Looking: The Photography Collection of Carol Beesley Hennagin

Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Norman

Info: Carol Beesley Hennagin’s love for photography began during her education at the University of California, Los Angeles. For more than 35 years, she has collected works by many of the best known photographers of the 20th century and, in 1988, Beesley and her late husband, Michael Hennagin, began donating portions of their collection to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. Still Looking offers a survey of Beesley’s collecting practices and includes photographs by established artists such as Edward Weston and Frederick Sommer, as well as lesser-known figures. The exhibit also features promised gifts of Byron Wood’s photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe. Admission to the museum is complimentary thanks to a donation by the University of Oklahoma Athletic Department. Museum is closed Mondays.
