The Pulitzer Prize Photographs: Capture the Moment
The Newseum's popular exhibit, "The Pulitzer Prize Photographs:
Capture the Moment," has been extended and will remain open through Sunday,
May 6. The exhibit, which opened Nov. 24, 2000, sparked a dramatic increase
in Newseum attendance.
On Sunday, May 6, 3 p.m.: Clarence Williams, the Pulitzer
Prize-winning photographer from the Los Angeles Times will speak at the Newseum.
Williams won the 1998 Feature Award for his series on "orphans of addiction."
"War Stories," the Newseum's next major exhibit, is
now scheduled to open on Friday, May 18.
"The Pulitzer Prize Photographs: Capture the Moment"
is the largest and most comprehensive display of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs
ever shown in the United States. The exhibit features more than 100 images drawn
from each year's winning entries from 1941--the first year a photograph was
eligible for the award--up to and including the award-winning 1999 images of
Kosovo refugees and the shooting at Columbine High School.
The Newseum, the only interactive museum of news, takes visitors behind the
scenes to see and experience how and why news is made. Relive the great news
stories of all time through multimedia exhibits, artifacts and news memorabilia;
and see today's news as it happens on a block-long video news wall.
The Newseum is funded by The Freedom Forum, a nonpartisan,
international foundation dedicated to free press, free speech and free spirit
for all people. The Newseum, located at 1101 Wilson Blvd. in Arlington, Va.,
is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Thanksgiving,
Christmas and New Year's days. Admission is free. For more information, call
