The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders at the Haggin Museum
This event has already taken place, but here is the past event information
Developed by the Newseum in collaboration with AARP, this exhibition features 19 large-format portraits of some of the most fascinating members of the influential baby boom generation.
October 4, 2018 - December 30, 2018
These portraits feature influential baby boomers — one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964 — taken by renowned American photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.
Visitors will gain insight into the boomer generation through interviews and portraits that focus on exceptional achievement, struggle and identity, telling the story of extraordinary Americans and the history they lived through and often created.
In addition to the 19 portraits, a three-panel timeline features some of the top news events and pop culture moments that defined the baby boom generation, with images of memorable newsmagazines and photos of iconic objects from the period. Visitors can add their own memories at a comment station.
