"REFLECTIONS IN A LOOKING GLASS: A Centenary Lewis Carroll Centenial Exhibition"
2000-04-29 until 2000-06-11
Dayton Art Institute
Dayton, OH, USA United States of America

As the creator of the classic childrens tale The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, known around the world for generations, Lewis Carroll (1832-1899) has a permanent place in literary history. However, less known today are his achievements as an amateur photographer, published mathematician and logician, game inventor, accomplished draughtsman, and magazine editor, among other diverse pursuits.

Carroll, the pseudonym of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, led an exuberant creative life that spanned many subjects and artistic forms. For the first time and with unprecedented depth, this exhibition assembles materials from across a range of media to illustrate the profundity of one mans involvement with the world, both of the imagination and the real. Drawn from the extensive Lewis Carroll archives at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at The University of Texas (Austin), the exhibition features more than 100 rare vintage photographs along with editions of Carroll texts and original drawings and watercolors. ADMISSION: $5 adults; $3 seniors and students 12 & over; Free for youth under 12 and museum members. With support from Rex TV & Appliances.
