CURRENT EXHIBIT September 9th – September 30th, 2019: Here’s Looking at You, Durham!
The exhibition “Here’s Looking at You, Durham!” is a selection of forty-two photographs inspired by the themes for the city’s Sesquicentennial celebration: Social Equity and Robust Democracy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, History and Education, and Arts and Leisure. The photographs are part of the Durham Herald Company Newspaper Photograph Collection, preserved in the North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives, part of the Louis Round Wilson Special Collections Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and contain photos from the The Durham Sun, Durham Morning Herald, and The Herald-Sun taken during the late 1970s through the early 1990s. The exhibit is sponsored by the E.T. Rollins, Jr. and Frances P. Rollins Foundation. The Durham Herald-Sun Papers were owned by the Rollins family for more than 100 years.
