6th and Constitution Avenue NW
Observe the first exhibition to solely focus on photographs made in the eastern half of the U.S. during the 19th century at the National Gallery of Art. Incorporating some 175 works, including daguerreotypes and stereographs, the display features images of natural wonders and a country amid a cultural shift due to industrialization and tourism. These striking photographs helped establish the American identity and paved the way for environmentalism.
