Washington St. <br>Drawn from the more than 150 photographs in the Phoenix Municipal Art Collection, the exhibit features 28 works by American photographers, such as Robert Adams, Paul Caponigro, William Clift, Chris Colville, Byron Darby, Lee Friedlander, Emmet Gowin, Mark Klett, Skeet McAuley, Anne Noggle, Aaron Siskind, Joel Sternfeld and others. The works date from the late 1940s through the present. Their subjects range from depictions of the luminous beauty of light and landforms that have long attracted photographers and other artists to the West, to examinations of the increasing human role and impact on the landscape. The images, in black-and-white and color, represent a variety of traditional and digital photographic printing methods. <br>The exhibition will remain on view through September 2015. The Gallery @ City Hall is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located on the ground floor of City Hall.</p><p>Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2015, The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture was established by the Phoenix City Council in 1985 to advance the growth and development of the city’s arts and cultural community.
