DIA showing off musician Patti Smith's photography

Published:

DETROIT (AP) -- A recently opened exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts focuses on the photography of musician Patti Smith.

Called "Patti Smith: Camera Solo," it features dozens of black-and-white gelatin silver prints Smith produced.

The exhibition kicked off on Friday and runs through Sept. 2. It's free with museum admission.

The DIA says Smith began taking 35-millimeter photos in 1968 as components for collages and took up the serious use of the Polaroid Land Camera in 1995.

The exhibition was organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Conn.
