DANBURY, CT – The Danbury Museum & Historical Society will launch its Collections, Community & Conversation winter exhibit on Saturday, Feb. 6, with "Life Through A Lens: A Photo Retrospective of Greater Danbury."
This display of photojournalism as art features images from the collections of News-Times staff photographers Carol Kaliff, Michael Duffy, Wendy Carlson and the late David W. Harple.
"When retired News-Times staff reporter Robert Miller approached us with the idea to showcase the work of these outstanding photographers and his longtime friends, we knew it would be perfect for this annual exhibit," said Brigid Guertin. She's executive director of the Danbury Museum & Historical Society and Danbury's city historian. "It's a chance to see the world through their eyes, and an opportunity for the artists to share some of Greater Danbury's history with museum visitors."
"I love photographs as history," said Kaliff, who's photo editor for the News-Times. "Frozen moments that remind us that we all share a constantly changing culture."
"Here is a chance to see some of the best photographs Wendy, Mike, Dave and Carol took during the twenty years they worked together," remarked Miller.
The exhibit will be displayed Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., until April 2. This exhibit is free and open to the public -- though donations are gratefully accepted.
The Danbury Museum & Historical Society was formed in 1947 to acquire, preserve, exhibit and interpret the history of Danbury. Situated in downtown Danbury, the museum preserves the John and Mary Rider House (c.1785), the Dodd Hat Shop (c. 1790), two one-room schoolhouses, the Marian Anderson Studio, and the Charles Ives Birthplace. Huntington Hall, a modern exhibit building, houses the museum offices, archives and research library.
