Black History Month Exhibit at Florham

Exhibits  Tagged , , , Comments Off

African-American girlThe Library celebrates Black History Month this year with an exhibition of studio portraits of anonymous African-Americans photographed, ca. 1915, by an anonymous African-American photographer working in Philadelphia in the early twentieth century; and a sampling of books drawn from the Library’s non-circulating collections of works by African-American authors and photographers, all of which are first printings.

These photographs were printed from a group of glass negatives found in the studio of a Philadelphia artist.
They were discovered by Carol Wald (1935-2001), a New York-based artist and graphic designer, who loaned the plates for printing to a Morris County resident who has made these prints available to us for this exhibition.

The photos will be on display in the lobby of the College at Florham Library from January 26 – March 6, 2009 during normal library hours. For more information about this exhibit, please call the College at Florham Library at 973-443-8516 or -8515.

In the Presence of Nature

Exhibits  Tagged , Comments Off

The Library at the College at Florham is pleased to present a photography exhibit of nature photographs. In the fall of 1990 Jerry Barrack discovered the Allendale Celery Farm Natural Area located in Allendale, NJ. This 100 acres of preserved open space has provided Barrack with the opportunity to photograph an astounding variety of wildlife: herons, raptors, ducks, minks and foxes, plus dozens of species of flowers and plants. The African images in this exhibit were the result of another project in South Africa during the summers of 1998 and 1999.

The exhibit will be on display in the lobby of the College at Florham Library on the second floor of the library from April 14 through June 7, 2008.
