Collection of the
Museum of Photographic Arts
|The Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, California, officially
opened its doors to the public on May 1, 1983, as one of the first
museum facilities in the United States designed exclusively to collect
and present the world's finest examples of photographic art. Its traveling
exhibitions have been seen worldwide.
MoPA has collected and displayed works from the entire history of the medium: daguerreotypes and albumen prints from the 19th century; pictorialism from the 1910s and 20s; master works from the mid-20th century and contemporary works and photojournalism by many of the best photographers working today.
In 1999, a four-fold expansion began. The museum is scheduled to re-open featuring a cinema component in March 2000.
