Founded in 1954, the Naples Art Institute serves the local community by encouraging appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. As part of this mission, the Institute (which is located in downtown Naples on the northwest corner of Cambier Park) is currently displaying “The Power of Photography: Iconic Images from the Collection of Peter Fetterman,” an exhibition featuring a curated selection of 70 original prints, through April 28.

The show gathers some of the most unique and heartening photographs from the twentieth century, such as Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl, Yousuf Karsh’s 1941 portrait of Winston Churchill, and Norman Parkinson’s circa-1955 snap of Audrey Hepburn. Each image acts as a time capsule, offering a glimpse into days past. General admission is $15 per person and free for those under 18. Docent-led tours are available Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon and Fridays at 1 p.m.
