Herb Ritts: Beauty and Celebrity
Opens Thursday, May 9
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art brings the iconic work of famed photographer Herb Ritts to its galleries. Herb Ritts: Beauty and Celebrity opens Thursday, May 9, and includes work from his pinnacle years (1980s-1990s) as a fashion photographer and celebrity portraitist for such publications as Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ. Look for pictures of Johnny Depp, Matthew McConaughey, Madonna and other famous faces as well as supermodels Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. “Celebrity” shares top-billing for this exhibition organized by Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, but “beauty” is the emphasis in this collection of arrangements focusing on texture, nature and the human body. They reveal the late Ritts (1952-2002) as a true artist of the lens. Museum admission is $5-$12, and hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday (until 9 p.m. Thursday) and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. This exhibit will be on display through July 28. The museum is located at 415 Couch Drive. For more, see www.okcmoa.com.
