Campus Connections: Columbia exhibit will be in debates

The upcoming presidential debates will feature an exhibit of 67 photographs of U.S. presidents.

The photographs are from the archives of Pictures of the Year International, which conducts a highly respected photojournalism competition.

MU’s School of Journalism and the University of Miami School of Communication produced the exhibit, “The Presidential Image: 60 Years of the Best of White House Photography.”

“It is a wonderful set of pictures and a great stimulus and backdrop for discussions.,” said David Rees, director of Pictures of the Year International, in a release.

The exhibit is being displayed around Columbia this month before it is moved to the first two debate sites — at the University of Miami and Washington University on Sept. 30 and Oct. 8, respectively.

The photographs can be seen at the Roger B. Wilson Boone County Government Center, 801 E. Walnut St., through Sept. 24. The Columbia appearances are sponsored by Boone County National Bank.
