Curated by Vin Alabiso

Every four years, a new crop of hopefuls vie for the American presidency, and life on the campaign trail is full of landmark moments — from stirring speeches at big public rallies to exhausted huddles with close confidants after hours.

A timely new exhibit at the BCAE examines the highs and lows of the road to the White House (2000-2016) through the eyes of local press photographers who have seen it all.

The exhibit runs from September 2016 through January 2017. Free and open to the public during business hours.
