Building a Collection: Photography at the Fitchburg Art Museum March 18, 2013 through Summer 2014
This special exhibition, organized by Consulting Curator of Photography Stephen Jareckie, features historically significant photographers including Peter Henry Emerson, Alexander Gardner, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Sheeler, Berenice Abbott, Edward Weston, Bradford Washburn, Harold E. Edgerton, and Paul Caponigro.

The Fitchburg Art Museum began collecting fine art photographs since 1980 by accepting the anonymous donation of Charles Sheeler’s Lever House, an image celebrating an iconic international-style, glass-faced structure erected in mid-town Manhattan during New York’s building boom after World War II. Two more Sheeler photographs, taken in 1929 at Chartres, France, were donated in 1981, which laid the foundation for what has become a collection of over 450 photographic prints.
