The Oklahoma City Museum of Art brings a collection of more than 40,000 photographs to its halls during Ansel Adams and the Photographers of the West.

The show, which runs through May 26, showcases Adams and his wide array of photos of the American West and its many features. Adams is credited for bringing environmental awareness to the forefront of America’s concerns throughout the 1900s.

Along with Adams, other featured 20th-century artists in the show include William Garnett, Philip Hyde, Laura Gilpin and Eliot Porter.
