Newark: A Pictorial History

This exhibit was on display from May 7 to August 31, 2018 on the second floor main gallery of the Newark Public Library.

The results of my summer research project were transformed into this exhibition of fine prints, postcards, and photographs of Newark from the eighteenth century through the present day, all selected from the library’s Special Collections. Like my Newark Metamorphosis project, this exhibit similarly relied on past vs. present photo comparisons of Newark. Old postcards were paired against present day photos of the same location from the identical camera angle. I contributed about thirty-five of these comparisons. I also assisted the library with $8,000 funding to digitize its extensive map and postcard collection from summer 2016 through summer 2017.
