From Miami to Montana, Washington, DC to Washington State, media near and far is taking note of our Annie Leibovitz exhibition, featuring her 156-image “Master Set,” on view publicly for the first time. More than 100 outlets across the country and overseas picked up the Associated Press story (and accompanying images), from the San Francisco Chronicle to the Providence Journal to UK’s Daily Mail. Grab a copy of the October issue of Vogue magazine to see a piece about the exhibition, which notes that her career has “yielded images so defining of America in our time….that her achievement can be difficult to grasp.” Vanityfair.com also highlighted the show and noted especially some of Leibovitz’s work for that magazine. If you’re flying this month, you might have seen the pieces in in-flight magazines on Delta, United, and Continental flights. Metro Weekly in D.C., Chicago Tribune, and others have touted our hotel package at The Lofts downtown. And locally, alive papers provide more insight into the making of the exhibition and the work in the show; ran the first review out of the gate, telling readers simply, “You must go.”
