On Exhibit through February 20, 2016
Millyard Museum - Included with Regular Admission

JFK Victory Park

The exhibit, Manchester, the Primary & the Presidency is currently on display in the Fuller Gallery at the Millyard Museum.

The exhibit features over 100 images candidates through the years as they engaged with Manchester voters in their homes, on the streets and in the many iconic watering holes that are the lifeblood of so many campaigns.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, you're certain to see some of your favorite candidates - Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Obama - as they press the flesh with your friends and neighbors in their quest to win election to our nation's highest office. We believe Manchester is the crucible of the Presidential Primary process in New Hampshire, and with this exhibit, we demonstrate our pivotal role in American political history.

 

Picturing ClassPicturing Class: Lewis W. Hine Photographs Child Labor in New England by Dr. Robert Macieski
Saturday, February 20, 2016
10:30 a.m. - noon 

In this richly illustrated book, Robert Macieski examines Lewis W. Hine's art and advocacy on behalf of child laborers as part of the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC) between 1909 and 1917.  In Picturing Class, Macieski explores the historical context of Hine's photographs and the social worlds of his subjects.  He offers a detailed analysis of many of the images, unearthing the stories behind the creation of these photographs and the lives of their subjects.  In telling the story of these photographs, their creation, and their reception, Macieski demonstrates how Hine worked to advance an unvarnished picture of a rapidly changing region and the young workers at the center of this important shift.  

Robert Macieski is associate professor of history at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester.
