1968: Magnum in New York

"The more you read and learn about 1968 the more difficult it becomes to understand how the nation survived. And yet, it of course did. Perhaps it is so that because there were so many momentous events, so much emotion, we forget that most people simply went along with their daily life. Tuning out the world around them, turning off the television, or at the very least changing channels. Isn't that, after all, what most of us do today?

"Though this exhibit includes images related to many of those history-changing events, it also includes photos of people going about their business in pretty much the same way they had and would." - Carl Rutberg, curator

Dates: 4 September - 31 December 2008
