See works by artists trained at the Institute of Design, such as Harry Callahan and Yasuhiro Ishimoto, as well as more contemporary work by Dawoud Bey and Clarissa Bonet.
Following, the group visits the home of Richard and Ellen Sandor who have been collecting photography and outsider art for over 40 years and have amassed one of the premier private art collections in America, with over 2,000 works spanning the period from the 1840s to the present. The Richard and Ellen Sandor Family Collection contains definitive examples of photography that are complemented by paintings, drawings, sculpture and New Media that drive the major themes in the collection: 19th and 20th Century Icons, Paris Between the Wars, the American West, Hollywood Portraits, Surrealism, Feminism, African American History, and Chinese contemporary photography.
