Culture notes: Booth Museum extends Ansel Adams show; Coretta Scott King Book Awards

VISUAL ART
Booth extends Adams show
Having drawn more than 20,000 visitors since the “Ansel Adams: A Legacy” retrospective opened in late September, the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville is extending the exhibit through March 13. However, after the original closing date of Feb. 20, the show will shrink a bit, from 130 photos to more than 90. That is in order to make room for the exhibit “Ed Mell: New West Visionary,” opening March 10 in conjuction with the 8th Annual Southeastern Cowboy Gathering. 770-387-1300, www.boothmuseum.org.
