Famed Steve McCurry talks about his photography in this video produced for our current exhibit, no strangers.
The award was presented to her by fellow photog, George Steinmetz who had this to say about this year's winner:
"This photographer is a practitioner of a technique sometimes known as 30-cups-of-coffee-for-a-frame. For this photographer, the people and their relationships are more important than the pictures, and that is really saying something about those relationships, as the pictures are really extraordinary. It is this photographer’s humility and delicate respect for the subjects that makes these pictures so outstanding. For this photographer, still waters run deep."
Big congrats to Lynn!

The show will rock on!
Due to unprecedented popular demand, Who Shot Rock & Roll will be extended an additional two weeks. That means you have until October 21, 2012 to see the show for the first time or the 20th time. After that date, the show will leave the United States and travel abroad. Who Shot Rock & Roll will travel to its final stop later this year: the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand. Once the exhibit closes, the Space will shut down until November 17 to prepare for our next show.
Up next at the Space is No Strangers. Click here for more information about that exciting exhibit.
Over the weekend HGTV host Vern Yi and Facts of Life star Mindy Cohn stopped by to take in no strangers. Here are the two posing with WAG-A-LOT CEO Craig Koch. Hurry up and experience the exhibit for the first, second or third time - this weekend is your last chance before it closes for good!
We've just extended the exhibit run for Who Shot Rock & Roll and, at the same time, are also prepping for the opening of our next show, no strangers: Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World. The exhibit is about the wonder of culture and the plight of indigenous people throughout the world and opens on November 17, 2012. Watch the video teaser above to get a sense of what to expect from this important show.
It's the final weekend for the no strangers exhibit. How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor stopped by today to take in the exhibit before it closes. He came by just in time as the show will end on Sunday at 6pm. Come see it if you haven't had a chance. Hope you enjoyed the exhibit and documentary, Josh!
