Overview

"The 2022 Special Exhibition season concludes with American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs.

American Myth & Memory probes the recesses of America’s collective memory and imagination. Through his use of toys, Levinthal looks at quintessential American subjects and mass media’s role in mythologizing familiar cultural touchstones. Levinthal spent his childhood engaging with classic American myths and legends through televised Westerns and plastic playthings and his art has never strayed far from these formative influences: he has dedicated his 40-year career photographing toys in meaningful and playful vignettes that challenge our perceptions of photographic authenticity."
