Great variety of photographs displayed at the University of Arizona. Parking in one of the parking garages is your best bet.

I had not been to the CCP (Center for Creative Photography) in years, so I decided to take my wife (who had never been.) We spent hours looking at the exhibits, and I could have spent more time. Walk through once, then go back again...More

I was in town and decided to drive 1/2 hour each way to check out the CCP. Nice works displayed by Ansel Strange and some others. Some History of the acquisition of Ansel' work is given as other interesting tid bits.

Only about 40 of the 90,000 photos in the collection are on display. Be sure to see the items in the pull out draws. Nice interesting selection, with good side wall write ups, but there is lost opportunity for so much more. Photos are rotated...More
