Presented in collaboration with The Gordon Parks Foundation, the exhibition features more than seventy-five images, including his famed reinterpretation of "American Gothic" and selections from his Life magazine photo essays and will coincide with The Studio Museum in Harlem’s "Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family 1967,"  which runs through June 30, 2013.
