A View of Athens from the Past
In celebration of the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation’s 50th year, the Lyndon House Arts Center will present a collection from "Growing Up in Athens" photographs taken of the town over several decades. “Captured in Time” will be displayed in two parts. "Downtown Athens through the Years," on view from August 8 – September 9 and "Unidentified Houses of Athens," July 15 – November 1. From daguerreotype to polaroid, all will enjoy these historic pictures of our neighborhoods, our citizens, and our landscape.
"Growing Up in Athens, GA," a Facebook group, is administered by Roy Moseman, Johnny Kesler and Jerry Crawley. The site began as a way for old friends to share photos and memories of Athens. It has since grown to house thousands of images with more than 18,000 likes and more than 17,000 followers. The photos come from various sources, but most are contributed by the general public.
All exhibitions are free and open to the public during regular gallery hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
