We are very pleased to share the recent CBS News feature on the gallery's current Alfred Eisenstaedt exhibit:

"Famed Life magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt's classic images are an indelible part of history. His iconic portraits of the biggest figures of the 20th century -- including Adolf Hitler, Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe and Winston Churchill -- along with his beautiful, poignant images of daily life made him one of the most published photojournalists in the world. He was the quintessential Life photographer with the unfailing ability to capture the defining moment."

The full feature may be viewed here.

 The exhibit continues through June 26.
