Ansel Adams photos

in Myrtle Beach

A exhibition of iconic images by nature photographer Ansel Adams has just opened at the Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach. The touring exhibit is from the Lakeview Museum of Arts & Sciences of Peoria, Illinois in affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution.

The collection includes 72 black and white images Adams printed for his daughter.

It is part of a portfolio he conceived in the 1970s as the best images from his career. Most of the images are landscapes, but there are also close-up nature works, portraits and architectural subjects.

The show runs through Sept. 21.

Two museums

bring exhibit on Greece to Chicago

Two Chicago museums are partnering to bring a major exhibit about ancient Greece to the city next year.

The Field Museum and National Hellenic Museum announced The Greeks: From Agamemnon to Alexander the Great will premiere at the Field Museum in November 2015. The exhibit will feature more than 500 pieces and artifacts on loan from nearly two dozen Greek museums.

Those artifacts include pieces from the tomb of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great.

The National Hellenic Museum plans to host related programming at its facility in Chicago’s Greektown neighborhood. Field Museum curator William Parkinson says visitors will see the evolution of “Greek culture, politics and economics.”

The exhibit will be in Chicago from Nov. 26, 2015, to April 17, 2016.

Airlines

New Service

• Silver Airways and JetBlue Airways both announced they will start nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Jacksonville International Airport.

Silver said its flights will begin Aug. 19 with up to three nonstop flights a day until Nov. 2, when the frequency will increase to as many as six flights a day. There will be fewer flights on weekends. Silver will operate the flights on 34-seat turboprop planes.

JetBlue will start twice-daily service on Oct. 29 aboard 100-seat jets.

• Silver Airways also said it will initiate twice daily nonstop service between Orlando and Key West beginning Monday.

• TAM Airlines has begun weekly service between Miami International and Fortaleza, Brazil.

• Swiss International Air Lines said it will increase the frequency of its daily Miami-Zurich route to 14 flights per week during the winter 2014-15 season. Strong demand on the transatlantic route, which operated 10 weekly flights during the winter 2013-14 season, prompted the airline to add the four additional weekly flights.

The added frequency will take effect on Oct. 27 and operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays through March 27.

•  Cape Air recently added service into Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, from San Juan, Puerto Rico, the airline’s Caribbean hub, in addition to regularly scheduled flights into Beef Island.
