If you were alive when President Kennedy was assassinated, you probably remember where you were on that tragic day. To commemorate the 50th anniversary, “Flash Back — November 22, 1963” explores the media’s role and chronicles the assassination events through Andy Warhol’s portfolio “Flash — November 22, 1963.” Other artists represented include Tina Mion and Wayne Gonzales. Sept. 3 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (through Jan. 12). Free. The Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, 180 Main St., Andover. 978-749-4015.


Both Lanes In the ’60s and ’70s, William H. and Saundra B. Lane collected images by American modernist photographers Charles Sheeler, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and others. The couple also collected pieces by William Henry Fox Talbot (the 19th-century inventor of positive-negative photography) and contemporaries including Francesca Woodman and Kenro Izu. In 2012, Mrs. Lane gave the collection to the Museum of Fine Arts, and it’s on view at “An Enduring Vision: Photographs from the Lane Collection.” Monday hours are 10 a.m.-4:45 p.m. (through March 30). $25, $23 students and seniors, free under 7 (and ages 7-17 with restrictions).
