Great Heights: The Photography of Ed Brady & Aero Photographers
On Exhibit through December 2022
This temporary exhibit consists of 18 stunning, large-scale black and white aerial photographs of Marin County from the 1950s and ‘60s, a time of rapid growth and development. Aero Photographers, a company started by radio personality and WWII veteran Ed Brady and his cohort Jack Van Wart in the late 1940s, documented the Bay Area from the air for nearly four decades, creating a vast and important visual record that continues to be appreciated and accessed regularly by all kinds of researchers. Ed Brady’s love for Marin County, his home, is clear in this carefully curated survey of his company’s work.
Coming Winter 2023!
Our next exhibit will explore the histories of Marin’s bottling industries—dairy, brewing, soda and pharmaceuticals—and themes around collecting, through the lens of the Marin History Museum’s extensive glass bottle collection. Watch for exciting programming around the exhibit and an opportunity to share your “message in a bottle”!
