A Change of Scenery: Photographs of Leisure in the Landscape
February 8–July 16, 2023
A Change of Scenery: Photographs of Leisure in the Landscape surveys ways of “being” in the landscape, encompassing common activities like sight-seeing, recreation, and play, and affective states like joy, intimacy, affinity, and belonging. Featuring approximately 55 American photographs from the 19th and 20th centuries from the Cantor collection depicting people in various outdoor public spaces, this single-gallery exhibition considers the importance of access to nature and leisure, what access entails, and how it shapes identity.
This exhibition is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Halperin Exhibitions Fund.
The Cantor is open to the public, Wednesdays–Sundays 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. We’re always free. Advance registration is not required, but it helps us plan if we know who's coming.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
