Bridges: The Spans of North America

Jan. 18, 2013 - April 28, 2013

Following the widely acclaimed exhibition of David Plowden’s railroad photographs, "Requiem for Steam, 2011," the artist returns to present images from his years of work photographing dozens of bridges across the American landscape as part of a Guggenheim fellowship. Many of these engineering marvels no longer exist but in the imagination and in these captivating works. In Plowden’s words, “there is no more overt, powerful, or rational expression of accomplishment -- of man’s ability to build.” This exhibition is a tribute to the artist and those expressions of accomplishment.
