Brooklyn showcases images of war

January 18, 2014 by  

Next week, the Cold Spring Harbor Library and Environmental Center Community will be organizing a day trip into New York City to see a photography exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.

The exhibition is called “War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath” and features pieces from 255 different photographers, some of whom are award-winning journalists, others who are soldiers, and still more who are artists or amateurs. The photographs are from conflicts all over the globe that have taken place in the last 166 years.

The Cold Spring Harbor Library and Environmental Center has been in existence for 125 years. Though it has resided in a number of different buildings, it has been an important part of the community for a long time and provides many research and educational opportunities to residents of the surrounding areas.

Organizers for this trip may want to turn to printing companies to help advertise for it. Posting flyers or posters in nearby towns like Hicksville is a way to get more people to attend the trip. Hosting venues often use print companies to create their informational brochures as well.

There is an $85 fee for the trip, though veterans and service members pay a discounted fee of $78. The fee covers the bus into New York, a ticket to the exhibition, and lunch. There will also be a presentation by an expert on war photography.

The bus leaves at 9:30 am on January 24, returning at around 6:00 pm.
