Looking forward to checking this show out! :D
So many cool things going on at the Wex this fall we're finally going to invest in membership! Normally we hit 3-4 events per year, but with the Studio Ghibli festival and this a membership is well worth it.

Annie Leibovitz doesn’t often give interviews. Yet she was remarkably transparent and full of stories about her work when she led a group of media professionals on a tour of her new Wexner Center exhibition Friday morning. It was a rare opportunity to get inside the head of one of the world’s best-known photographers of the last 40 years.

I've been through the exhibition twice and it's very moving. It really connects you to people and certain points in your life.
The international press is great for Columbus and The Wex. I feel like The Wex has a bigger following outside of Columbus than within the city. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know, but hopefully that will change and this exhibition will open more eyes to this local institution.

￼October 24, 2012
Photographer Annie Leibovitz, whose work is on view in a major exhibition at the Wexner Center, returns November 9 and 10 to receive the Wexner Prize and to engage in a public conversation with Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann S. Wenner.
￼Annie Leibovitz discusses her work with longtime friend and colleague Jann S. Wenner, the founder, ￼publisher, and editor of Rolling Stone magazine. Their collaboration at Rolling Stone in the 1970s is legendary, and in the years since, each has gone on to play a profound part in shaping and interpreting our social, cultural, and political history. Wenner is also included in the Wexner Center’s Annie Leibovitz
￼￼￼￼￼Also that weekend, Leibovitz will receive the 14th Wexner Prize in a private ceremony Saturday, November 10 at 7:30 pm. Wexner Center Foundation board chair Leslie H. Wexner comments, "Artistic, adventurous, curious, and deeply committed to creative experimentation, Annie Leibovitz embodies the ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼very ideals of the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Prize. She has delved into myriad facets of American culture with her camera over the last 40-plus years, giving us a fresh perspective on people at the forefront of their respective fields. On the occasion of the exhibition of her work at the Wexner Center this fall, we are thrilled to award the 14th Wexner Prize to Leibovitz."
The Prize ceremony takes place at the beginning of the Wexner Center’s 23rd Anniversary Party. Later that night, starting at 10:30 pm and running until 2 am, is Last Shot, a GenWex party featuring DJ Venus X, food, drink, and more. Last Shot is open to the public; tickets are $30 for the general public and $20 for Wexner Center members, and available at tickets.wexarts.org or 614-292-3535.
