EXHIBITION DATES:
September 5th - October 28th, 2017

 

 

A major exhibition of photographs from The Buhl Collection entitled Speaking With Hands was on view at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City in 2004. The exhibition traveled internationally from 2005-2007 to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain, Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany, the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. In 2008, an exhibition of both photography and sculpture was on view at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida and from 2009–2011, an exhibition of 150 works from the collection toured Asia (on view in museums in Korea, Taiwan and Macao). The 2012 Sotheby’s sale of selected photographs from The Buhl Collection was the largest single-owner sale of a privately owned photography collection; bringing in over $12 million.

Mr. Henry Buhl is an active philanthropist, in addition to A.C.E. with programs for job training and placement for homeless men and women. He also founded The Buhl Foundation to assist non-profit programs within its mission.
