The Art Museum's photography collection includes examples ranging from the earliest photogravures of Edward S. Curtis and exploratory photographs of William Henry Jackson to the recent works of Richard Misrach, Mark Klett and Richard Barnes. Photo-Secession artist Alvin Langdon Coburn and other 20th century photographers in the collection include Berenice Abbottt, Laura Gilpin, and Harold Edgerton. Both Ralston Crawford and Eliot Porter are well represented in the collection. As a recipient of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Photographic Legacy Program, in which collections of original Warhol photographs were distributed to 180 academic collections in the U.S., the Art Museum collection includes 150 Polaroid and gelatin silver prints taken by Andy Warhol over the course of his career.
