“Annie Lebovitz exhibit - Incredible Images”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Spent a few hours at Wexner to see her portraits of the famous and infamous over 50 years of living. She is an icon in the photography world who captures the true essence of people thru their expressions, facial details and freezes their emotions on film.

“See Annie Lebovitz”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

A comprehensive exhibit of Annie's greatest photos can keep you fully engaged for several hours. Portraits, from her days with Rolling Stone magazine through Vanity Fair and beyond, capture the souls of the celebrities of the 20th century. There is so much here! Two visits might be best. Ends Dec. 30.

“Annie Leibovitz Exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is an experience for any art lover or photographer. Annie Leibovitz chose 150+ of her photographs to put on display. Really awesome photographs of very famous people. Ms. Leibovitz seemed to capture the essence of the person who she was photographing sometimes in some very unusual poses or settings. Well worth the time to visit the exhibit. Parking can be an issue. There is a parking garage south of the exhibit building but it is only open to the public after 4 pm or on weekends. Other wise the street parking is very limited.

The Wexner Center for the Arts has an in-house cafeteria so patrons can grab a bite to eat before venturing into the exhibit. I plan to go back before the exhibit leaves.

“Annie Liebovitz”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I am so proud to be a Columbus native and to have this exhibition in our wonderful city. Never before has she shown her work in this type of setting and we are the first! The Wexner Center has gone all out for this and it shows in the way the pictures are arranged, You will be blown away by the sheer volume of her work. There are plenty of docents to help you with the exhibition as well as staff. Best advice: go on a Sunday afternoon. Parking is a premium, but the meters are free, so look hard for one! Also, it is free on Thursdays after 4 PM.

“Annie Leibovitz's photo art is not to be missed”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Whether you have been to the Wexner or not; whether you like the layout or not; whether you hate the parking situation or not:- the collection of Annie Leibovitz's photo art is wonderful and illuminating. Many of the photos are iconic. The size of the presentation and the scope of subjects will satisfy everyone. She is a treasure. Her keen eye, subtle perspectives and composition is astounding. As good fortune would have it, the exhibit will be at the Wexner until the end of 2012.
