May 18th has been designated as International Museum Day and Govinda Gallery joins in the celebration of museums. We are going to spotlight a few museum exhibitions and events this week that we enjoy a connection to.

I enjoyed seeing Pilgrimage very much. I am interested in places and objects associated with creative and innovative people, and Annie Leibovitz’s photographs in Pilgrimage explore that milieu. Leibovitz’s Pilgrimage exhibition ends this weekend at the American Art Museum in Washington DC.

Govinda Gallery hosted Annie Leibovitz’s first three exhibitions; Annie Leibovitz: Photographs in 1984, Annie Leibovitz: Photographs in 1987, and The White Oak Dance Project, Photographs in 1992. The more I think about those exhibitions at Govinda the more I realize what compelling shows they were and what a special time it was for photography. Here is a link to an early interview with Annie in a local Washington D.C. magazine called Fashion Flash, during her first exhibition at Govinda Gallery in 1984.
