Led by Curator of Photography and New Media, Charles Wylie, PhotoFutures is the Santa Barbara Museum of Art's dynamic support group for all things photography- and new media- related. Entering its third decade, PhotoFutures has helped SBMA build a collection of nationally-recognized importance while deepening its members' interest and knowledge in the photographic arts. Members enjoy rare access to extraordinary private collections and respected experts in the field, and in years past have met with renowned and emerging artists, learned about the latest conservation issues and techniques, and attended private tours and lectures focusing on 19th-century, modern, and contemporary topics. Numerous PhotoFutures acquisitions are prominently featured in the SBMA's 2019 exhibition A Brilliant Spectrum: Recent Gifts of Color Photography testament to the importance of the group to the continued growth and quality of the SBMA collection.
