Art in The Stacks: Peter Simon & America's Music

This month we are pleased to present an exhibit of photographs by nationally acclaimed photographer Peter Simon. The show will be on display during regular library hours throughout the month of February. This exhibit is presented in conjunction with the library's ongoing "America's Music" program series.

Over the course of a 40 year career Peter Simon has covered an eclectic range of subjects including the greatest names in rock 'n' roll, reggae and pop music. His work has appeared in major publications including Time, Newsweek, People, Village Voice, Atlantic Monthly, Cape Cod Life, Boston Magazine, New York Magazine, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone.

Peter Simon's photographs have been shown at galleries including On the Vineyard gallery, The Field Gallery, The Old Sculpin Gallery, The Nikon House and Niekrug Gallery in New York, and the Kiva Gallery in Boston. His work is also the subject of the a comprehensive retrospective book, "I and Eye", published by Little Brown in 2001.

"Art in the Stacks" is an initiative of the Friends of the Library to provide individual artists an opportunity to show their work, and for library patrons to enjoy art at the library throughout the year.

America's Music is a series of public programs created by the Tribeca Film Institute™ in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and in consultation with the Society for American Music.
