Joe Deal: West and West

November 3, 2010 - January 3, 2011
Kemper Art Museum, Saligman Family Atrium

Joe Deal was among the most influential American landscape photographers of the latter 20th century, known for austere, almost abstract images that balanced depictions of the natural and man-made worlds.

Joe Deal served as the dean of Washington University's School of Art from 1989-1999. In addition, he was the first director of the Visual Arts and Design Center, a precursor to the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.

Copies of West and West: Reimagining the Great Plains, a catalog by Joe Deal featuring this photography series and an essay by the artist, are available for purchase at the Kemper Art Museum Gift Shop.
