MONTEREY, CA.- The Monterey Museum of Art is the exclusive U.S. West Coast venue for Ansel Adams: Portrait of America, through October 3, 2010 at the Monterey Museum of Art-La Mirada, located at 720 Via Mirada, Monterey, California. In 1978, Ansel Adams selected more than 70 images he wished to make available to museums and arts institutions. Although he was able to complete a substantial number of the prints, his death in 1984 curtailed the long-range plans for the project. As a result, only a few complete “Museum Sets” were produced. “Visitors will experience America through the eyes of this genius in one of Monterey ’s most unique gallery settings-an historic mansion estate, the Monterey Museum of Art-La Mirada,” said the Museum’s Executive Director
