It's now on view in Riverside, July 16, 2011 - October 08, 2011:
The Great Picture: The World's Largest Photograph & The Legacy Project, an exhibition in three parts that tells the tale of the successful campaign to make the world's largest camera and photograph by six artists known as The Legacy Project-- the late Jerry Burchfield, Mark Chamberlain, Rob Johnson, Jacques Garnier, Douglas McCulloh, and Clayton Spada. Its mammoth scale of 32 x 111 feet has made it a Guinness Book world record, and a photo history landmark. It is also an exploration of the 172-year old conflict between painting and photography, and the more recent waning of traditional, analog, darkroom photography in the wake of digital dominance. The two-story atrium at the Culver Center of the Arts provides a rare opportunity to present such a gargantuan photograph. Organized by UCR Sweeney Art Gallery and Culver Center of the Arts, and curated by Tyler Stallings, artistic director, Culver Center of the Arts & director, Sweeney Art Gallery.
