This Saturday the Corcoran Museum will open its anticipated exhibit, William Eggleston: Democratic Camera. The exhibit a retrospective which brings together 150 photographs of the influential Eggleston, a pioneer of color photography and artist of the familiar. The show will also feature many of the images which put Eggleston on the map with his 1976 solo show at the MoMa. And the appeal of Corcoran’s free Summer Saturdays pretty much makes this decision for you. Take your dad, make it a Father’s Day with one of the fathers of photography as we know it today.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
