UCR California Museum of Photography UCR CMP Photo Gallery



UCR/California Museum of Photography, a facility of the L rriversity of California. Riverside, is dedicated to promoting the understanding of photography and related media through collection, research, exhibition, and instruction. UCR/CMP showcases photography and related imaging technologies and the apparatuses that support these visual forms. UCR/CMP is housed in an acclaimed four-story facility on Riversides popular pedestrian mall. Renovated by architect Stanley Saitowitz. this one-time dime store now portrays a machine in the service of art.

Saitowitzs design treats the building as a metaphor of the camera. Such elements as a third-floor, walk-in camera obscura built into the buildings outer facade, dark rubber floors, and exposed air ducts produce an environment in which the people inside may be seen as the cameras film, absorbing light and information, becoming vehicles for transmission of the museum experience. Across from the Museums admissions desk is the Internet Gallery, where the public can explore UCR/CMPs World Wide Web site, as well as “visit the collections of other museums from around the world. Many items from the permanent collection> and archives can be seen in the museums main-level. In addition to the museums permanent gallery installation.
