A small, smartly curated museum with global clout (and worth at least an hour's visit), Foam specializes in conceptual exhibits from both power-house photographers and emerging talents. Exhibits change monthly and are often focused on social themes; past shows include Rob van der Nol's dreamy studies of adolescents on the brink of adulthood and Mitch Epstein's representations of American power. Two 2007 exhibits—a retrospective of the pioneering French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue's work and a pictoral account of Ryan McGinley's all-American road trip with his photogenic nudist friends—suggest that beauty, for its own sake, is often enough. The same message should pervade the Richard Avedon retrospective, which is slated for spring 2009.

Open Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays through Wednesdays 10 am to 6 pm, Thursdays and Fridays 10 am to 9 pm.
