Emma Plowman’s Moment Becomes Memory

Ripped From the Headlines: Photojournalism in Delaware

November 1, 2019 – January 19, 2020

News publishers are among the nation’s oldest and most revered image makers. The art of photojournalism, especially in local newspapers, is under appreciated in American art museums even though they tell the stories that unify communities. The Biggs Museum is proud to partner with nearly every major news and magazine platform within Delaware to select highlights in local photojournalism form the past 20 years in one group exhibition. In addition, select photos will also be on view from some of Delaware’s premier photojournalists like Gary Emeigh and Kevin Fleming.
