Photographs are among the most popular, widely relevant, and in-demand objects for teaching, exhibitions, and programs at the Johnson.

The exhibition catalogue Lines of Inquiry: Learning from Rembrandt’s Etchings was chosen for the College Art Association’s 2019 Alfred H. Barr Jr. Book Award for Smaller Museums, Libraries, Collections, and Exhibitions.

Jessica Levin Martinez, head of the Division of Academic and Public Programs at the Harvard Art Museums, has been named director of the Johnson Museum of Art.

Cathy Rosa Klimaszewski is retiring this January after more than three decades of teaching, collaborating, and representing the collection to all our audiences.

From colorfully lit nightclubs to dimly lit restaurants, works from the permanent collection have been selected by students in “Cities Dark and Light” (ARCH 6819). 

At the Johnson, photographs are more than just images; they are objects for teaching.

Our Spring 2017 "Adopt-A-Bus" crowdfunding campaign was a huge success, raising enough to cover costs for more than fifty school groups to be bussed to the Museum.

Our exhibition catalogue was awarded the 2018 Henry Allen Moe Prize for Catalogs of Distinction in the Arts, recognizing excellence in exhibitions- and collections-based publishing.

After nearly seven years of transformative work at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Stephanie Wiles is named the next director of the Yale Art Gallery. 

The Cornell University Library and the Johnson are partnering on a four-year initiative to create jointly developed exhibitions, teach, and develop systems to use our enormously rich photography collections more broadly.
