Looks like America


Bucks County photographer David Graham has spent 20 years capturing the face of America, and it’s now on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art.

And yes, it looks like Elizabeth Taylor (as impersonated by Angel Milou of Haverford in thephoto), and Ben Franklin, and a host of other famous and not-so-famous folk. Graham’s photos capture with wit and warmth those quirky individuals that make this country special.

Graham’s “All-American Boy” exhibit is paired with another witty exhibit, “Breathless,” featuring the weather-balloon sculptures of Nancy Davidson.


“ALL-AMERICAN BOY” / “BREATHLESS”: Through Jan. 16 at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 118 S. 36th St. Hours: Noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission $3, artists/seniors/students 12 and over $2, ICA members/PennCard holders/children under 12/all visitors Sundays before 1 p.m. free.
