Joe Moller Named Executive Director of LA Art Walk

Posted By Administration, Thursday, December 23, 2010
Updated: Thursday, December 19, 2013

Moller to refine vision of the ever growing monthly event in downtown LA.


For six years this second Thursday Gallery District Walk has been growing. Though it started small, peak attendance drew near to 20,000 last summer. Challenged and even criticized this past fall for overgrowing without organization and becoming less about art than a street party Moller will have work to do. This October owners of eight properties in the Old Bank and historic downtown pledged funds sufficient to develop, market, and provide office and administrative support to the Art Walk.

Eadweard Muybridge Exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in DC

Posted By Administration, Sunday, December 19, 2010
Updated: Thursday, December 19, 2013

Technology moves fast, art slower. You could say that art is still catching up to Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), a pioneer of stop-motion photography and early filmmaking.


In "Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change," at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, you can see how Muybridge himself got up to speed with industrialization, mechanization and the other radical changes of the late 19th century.

His impact on the 20th is difficult to overstate. The writer Rebecca Solnit, in her 2003 biography, called Muybridge "the man who split the second," aligning him with the inventor of the atom bomb.

Read the complete review in The New York Times.

Critics' Pick: The Mexican Suitcase Once "lost" photographs of Robert Capa, David Seymour, and Gerda Taro on view at the International Center of Photography.

NYT Critics' Pick

The story of these rediscovered works is as interesting as the images themselves.

Through May 8, 2011


Considered for years to be lost to history three boxes with over 4,000 35mm negatives were delivered to the ICP in 2007. The complete story of their journey from Paris to the ICP remains a bit of a mystery adding to the allure of the treasure the boxes contained- most notably images from the Spanish Civil War.

NYT Critics' Pick.

For more on the back-story, biographies of the legendary war photographers, and conservation of the negatives visit The International Center of Photography.
