American Images: New Work by Twenty Contemporary Photographers, an exhibition by
some of the country's most important contemporary photographers is being shown
through April 20 at the Museum of Fine Arts.
Works by Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Linda
Connor, Bevan Davies, Jan Groover, Mary
Ellen Mark, and others were commissioned by
the Bell system. The exhibit of physical and
social America provides a varied look at
America's landscape and people. One photographer rediscovered the countryside and
familiar buildings in his Texas hometown,
another documented the pregnancy of a
young Puerto Rican girl in New York City
(above) and a third pictured the hot colors of
Miami Beach and New Orleans.
The Women's International League for Peace
and Freedom (WILPF) is organizing a chapter

those political, social and psychological conditions which can assure peace, freedom, and
justice for all, throughout the world. For further information contact Akiko Watanabe,

A major retrospective of the work of Finnish
architect Alvar Aalto is now at the Rice Museum, University Blvd. at Stockton Street. The
New York Times characterized him: "Alvar
Aalto (1898-1976) is perhaps the least known
of the modern masters. But architectural histor
ians place him alongside the American Frank
Lloyd Wright, the Swiss Le Corbusier and the
German Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as one of
the century's greatest figures." Organized by
the Museum of Finnish Architecture in Helsinki,
the exhibition includes photographs, original
sketches, floor plans and models of Aalto's
major buildings, texts, and an extensive array of
the architect's furniture, most of which is still
in regular production.
Newsweek called the show "a choice collection of models, photographs, objects and texts
which will surprise and delight not only Aalto's
fans-but also those coming to see him for the
first time." First seen in the United States at
the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, the exhibition will
be on view Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. through
June 1. For further information, 527-4002.
