The Annenberg Space for Photography

It was wonderful to spend time over the weekend at the The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

Led by Wallis Annenberg,  Chairperson of the Board, President and CEO of the Annenberg Foundation, it is one of the largest private foundations in the United States .  Wallis has spent much of her life focused on philanthropy and is dedicated to education,  communications, arts and culture. The Photography Space opened its doors on March 27, 2009, and has quickly become an important cultural destination.

Wallis believes that, “Photography is one of the most accessible and personal forms of art. We see the creation of the Annenberg Space for Photography as a service to the community where visitors can see the world through a different lens and leave feeling motivated to make positive change.”

It was a privilege to be involved in the planning of the space, and very gratifying to see it come to fruition.
