MILWAUKEE (AP) -- An exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum will look at the evolution of color photography in the 20th century.

It will explore the historical developments from 1907 to 1981 that led to color photography becoming the norm in popular culture and fine art.

It will feature nearly 200 objects, including framed photographs, publications, slide shows and film clips, from nearly a dozen artists. They include Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan and Saul Leiter.

Exhibition co-curator Lisa Hostetler, who is former curator of photographs at the Milwaukee museum, says the years mark the introduction of the first commercially available color photographic process.

The exhibit, called "Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America," runs Feb. 22 through May 19.
