I was pretty excited to visit this museum because the works of Ansel Adams was here! Notice, there are no pictures of his work cause we weren’t allowed to take photos of them. I could have because the security guard was sitting on the job, not watching what everyone was doing! Ansel Adams works were mixed in with Dorthea Lang, Bob Kolbrener, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Philip Hyde, Rex Naden, Robert Weingarten, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Brett Weston, Pirkle Jones, Bradford Washburn, Al Weber, Julieanne Kost, and politician Barry M. Goldwater. I’m sure I missed a few, but it was a great collection.
Booth Museum is located in Cartersville, a small town in GA where you wouldn’t expect such great works to be shown. Their permanent collection is just as superb as there temporary exhibit. I loved the sculptures that were there, especially their horses. There was a presidental seciont that contained pictures of all of the presidents and letters that they wrote. I like the fact that there were many contemporary artists in the museum. If you get a chance, you should go visit this museum, especially if you like Western art.
