Norfolk, Virginia.- The Chrysler Museum is pleased to present “Cities of Light: Photographs from the Chrysler Collection”, on view at the museum through December 30th. This focused exhibition explores the urban metropolis as a source of poetic and visual inspiration for photographers across generations and continents. Cities of Light is inspired by the moniker for Paris, one of the first cities to install electric street lights in 1881. Photographers have captured shifts in the time of day, the dramatic mood, and the atmosphere of cities around the world with a wide array of light and shadow.
