Since the 1850s, American audiences have learned about news events through images in newspapers. The Columbus Museum owns more than 250 photographs from the archives of the Ledger-Enquirer, the city's longest-running newspaper. This exhibition highlights the many stories told through the faces and places of the Chattahoochee Valley, as captured by Ledger-Enquirer photographers.

This installation presents the very best contemporary realist paintings from the holdings of The Columbus Museum. As a survey in miniature, the exhibition provides visual evidence to students and visitors of the style's different inflections since the 1950s. In addition, the exhibition will chart how the use of realism has evolved from straightforward transcription to encompass more conceptual approaches.
