Carleton Watkins: The Stanford Albums

Through August 17
This exhibition of 83 breathtaking photographic prints by Carleton Watkins--America's most influential 19th-century landscape photographer--celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant of 1864. The prints, never before part of an exhibition, capture the beauty of the Northern Pacific Coast's majestic wilderness sites as well as the dramatic transformation of isolated territories due to exploration, settlement, logging, and mining.

Inside Rodin’s Hands: Art, Technology, and Surgery
Through August 3
Dr. James Chang, renowned Stanford hand reconstruction surgeon, has long been fascinated by Rodin’s sculptures of hands, many of which evince medical conditions. Chang has incorporated these sculptures into his hand surgery educational program, using new technologies that scan the sculptures, create interior anatomy, and allow for virtual surgery to correct the condition. This groundbreaking, multi-disciplinary exhibition demonstrates these technologies and provides an exciting interactive experience for visitors. Read more.
