President Barack Obama: The Exhibition set to visit Miramar! January 14 – February 29, 2016

Written by Staff Writer

The City of Miramar is proud to present an exclusive photographic collective featuring President Barack Obama which has been specially selected by Chief White House Photographer and Director of the White House Photo Office, Pete Souza.  The exhibition will be showcased in the Ansin Family Art Gallery located at the Miramar Cultural Center | Arts Park from January 14 – February 29, 2016.

President Barack Obama | The Exhibition will showcase a unique photo gallery of historic moments captured during President Barack Obama’s two terms in office and will also feature highlights of Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam since his election. The Exhibition was secured in part because of the parallel paths of accomplishments recognized with President Barack Obama being elected the first African-American President of the United States of America and Mayor Wayne Messam being the first African-American Mayor in the City of Miramar.

A community program will be held on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM in the Miramar Cultural Center– exactly seven years from the inaugural date of President Barack Obama.  The program is free and open to the public; however, tickets must be secured to attend. To get free tickets, visit the Miramar Box Office or go to www.miramarculturalcenter.org.

“This exhibition and its timing have provided a unique reflection of the City of Miramar and the nation in time for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Black History Month celebrations. It reflects the many contributions African-Americans have made and continue to make in this country,” stated Stephen Kantrowitz, Director of Cultural Affairs.
