Just got a call from Joyce Robinson, curator of the Palmer Museum of Art, with whom we did a Q&A in our July-August 2008 issue. Among other things, she was calling to tell me that the museum has booked an exhibition of the photographs of Steve McCurry ’74 for next summer. Woo hoo! We love Steve McCurry. He’s a National Geographic photographer who is most famous for his image of the Afghan girl with the haunting green eyes, but who has many, many other wonderful photographs. We feature his images in the magazine every couple of years, usually in conjunction with a new book of his—or whatever excuse we can find. :-)

Anyway, the exhibition is called Face of Asia and will be at the Palmer next June 21–August 16. So if you’re coming to University Park for the Arts Festival, you should definitely plan on a stop at the Palmer.
