Artists in Parallel: Griffith J. Davis & John Steinbeck

January 13, 2024, 10:00 am - March 24, 2024, 5:00 pm

The National Steinbeck Center in partnership with The Griffith J. Davis Photographs and Archives, will present a new and unique international exhibition entitled Artists in Parallel: Griffith J. Davis & John Steinbeck. This new exhibition runs from January 13-March 24, 2024 in the Arts & Culture Gallery at The National Steinbeck Center and is free with museum admission.

The exhibit shows Davis and Steinbeck’s artistic depictions of Celebrities, Political figures, Family life, and Development projects. This exhibit is a deep dive into the importance of art in the unfolding of world events and explores how the people who document these momentous events leave as much of an enduring legacy as those who author them.

A pioneer international photographer, journalist, U.S. Senior Foreign Service Officer, and photo-documentarian, Mr. Davis’ artistic and iconic photographs capture historical moments and figures, lifestyles, personalities, and people across a spectrum of political, socio-economic, and artistic sectors at the vortex of the Civil Rights Movement and the Independence Movement of Africa. His rarely seen 1948 to 1961 era images of his groundbreaking life and photographic practice will be fully placed.
