What: "Crosswalks: Street Photography." Presents 47 works by 14 photographers from the United States, Great Britain, and Australia. The exhibition portrays the unique, split-second revelations found through the art of street photography. Captured on the streets of New York, London, Amsterdam, Las Vegas, Athens, Melbourne, Barcelona, Milan, Venice, Palm Springs, and Dallas, each momentary image challenges the viewer’s perceptions of composition, content, and the nature of photography.

From the Promo: "The street photographer is always curious, looking to capture ethereal, momentary interactions. At its best, street photography (a catch-all phrase describing photos made surreptitiously in public places) provides a tension between form and content that resolves itself in humor, irony, and even insights into the human condition. The subjects are real, unaware of the photographer, and therefore captured in an un-self-conscious state. Traditional rules of composition are often set aside, as the street photographer invents a uniquely photographic language out of chaos."
