FARMVILLE, Va. — Presidential campaign photography captured by The Associated Press over the past century will be on display at Virginia’s Longwood University this fall.
The exhibition titled “Citizens and Leaders” will coincide with this year’s lone vice presidential debate, which the university will host Oct. 4. The exhibition will run from Sept. 9 through Oct. 16 at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts.
The display will feature photos that capture moments between presidential candidates and the citizens they hoped to represent as far back as 1916.
An opening reception for the exhibition will be held Sept. 9 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. A discussion about the photos and this year’s election will be held Oct. 4. It will be led by Santiago Lyon, AP vice president and director of photography.
