Though it was hard to say goodbye the the gorgeous photography of the travel albums DotyArchive_Portait004_forwebexhibit we are happy to announce the next library and archives focus exhibit. Through a Director’s Eyes: The collection of Robert “Mac” Doty is on view now through March 20,
2015 in the lower level library corridor.  The exhibit presents a small selection of the material presented to the Museum by the Doty family. Doty’s papers are open to researchers and include correspondence, original works of art including three serigraphs by Richard Anuskiewicz, a print by Neil Welliver, photographs and research files.

Doty committed himself to developing the photography collection at the Currier. He was instrumental in facilitating acquisitions from notable artists such as Lotte Jacobi and Paul Strand and along with his papers the library received over 1500 books from his personal library.  Two early volumes by the photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn are on view along with two snapshots of Doty taken by Coburn._MG_7708
