Northampton Community College, in partnership with the Monroe County Historical Association, is excited to announce its newest exhibit:Monroe County Past & Present: Resorts, Ruins, and the Rural Landscape.
Monroe County Past & Present: Resorts Ruins, and the RuralLandscape is a photographic exploration of Monroe County’s history, featuring contemporary art photography alongside historical photos and artifacts provided and curated by the Monroe County Historical Association. The exhibit explores three different areas of Monroe County history: resorts and recreation, its industrial and architectural past and present, and the shifting landscape of Monroe County itself… a landscape that, despite industrialized progress, still retains the amazing natural beauty that has drawn artists and visitors for hundreds of years.
The exhibit runs from September 12thuntil December 16thand will be on display in the Dunning Art Gallery in Keystone Hall at Northampton Community College’s Monroe Campus in Tannersville, Pennsylvania. The public is encouraged to join us in the Dunning Art Gallery for our free opening reception on Thursday evening, September 19th, from 5:30 – 6:30 PM for light refreshments and a panel discussion to follow. Beginning promptly at 6:30, our three featured panelists, Dr. Martin Wilson, Ms. Jennifer Palmer, and Dr. Lawrence Squeri, will lead a discussion taking us on an educational tour of Monroe County’s rich resort and cultural history.
The Pocono Photo Club is pleased to have several of our photographers' images featured in this exhibit.
