Now open – the new and extraordinary exhibit, “Faces Found – Boone County Portraits, 1886 -1940”.

Two years ago, volunteers in the Henry J. “Hank” Waters III Digital Imaging Lab began the work of digitizing our 500,000 piece vintage photography collection. This exhibit, running through early January, 2020, features more than 50 newly-digitized glass plate negatives that are the work of four early Columbia photographers. Some of the 50 enlarged prints are 5 feet in height. The exhibit also includes historic photography equipment and vintage textiles from our collections.

The exhibit can be found in the Walters West History Gallery at the Boone County History & Culture Center, Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. 3801 Ponderosa St, Columbia.
