The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council (GPCAAC) brings a rarely viewed collection of 50 compelling photographs from Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Eddie Adams. His 45-year career covered thirteen wars and amassed 500 photojournalism awards. He photographed five presidents and numerous other world dignitaries.
The exhibition will open on Saturday, August 7, and remains on view through Sunday, November 14. Visitors will be encouraged to post their responses to the exhibition on a special Arts Council facebook page devoted exclusively to the Eddie Adams Exhibit. We are encouraging individuals to upload video posts as well as written posts about their experiences. The exhibition is also accompanied by a letter-writing station and an audio feature with music of the period.
