WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Calling all shutterbugs -- ArtsWestchester is seeking photographs of Westchester’s most memorable moments from hobbyists and professionals alike for an exhibition this fall.
The arts organization, at 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
It is partnering with The Journal News, it said, to present “Through the Decades: Picturing 50 Years in Westchester.”
“2015 is a golden year for ArtsWestchester,” said its CEO, Janet Langsam, in a pres release. “We’re celebrating 50 years as Westchester County’s designated arts council and the county’s connection for the arts. As we ready ourselves for the next half-century, we are pausing to look back and celebrate all the milestones and memorable moments from Westchester’s past five decades with a special exhibition.”
Images can be submitted for consideration through the organization’s website, artswestchester.org, or artsw.org/decades.
