Traveling exhibits on the road in early 2019 include:
40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World” features the powerful photography of Howard G. Buffett. 40 photographs document the world hunger crisis as part of a global awareness campaign. Traveling to more than 137 countries, Buffett turned his camera lens on the powerful forces that fuel hunger and poverty. His photography is a call to action to find lasting solutions to the world hunger crisis.

“40 Chances” began the new year at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine in Augusta on Jan. 1 and will remain through March 26, 2019.

The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders” features 19 large-scale portraits of some of the most fascinating members of the influential baby boom generation — one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964 — taken by renowned American photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. This exhibition illuminates important movements and changes that shaped the world during that time.

“The Boomer List” is on exhibit from Jan. 26 through April 5, 2019 at the Museum of the Albemarle, Elizabeth City, N.C.
