WESSON BRINGS “HAIL TO THE CHIEF” EXHIBIT TO NATE HOLDEN PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Councilmember Herb J. Wesson, Jr., who organized the successful new photo art exhibit “Hail to the Chief” at the City Hall Over Bridge Gallery commemorating African American Heritage Month, has announced that the exhibit has now moved to the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center. The exhibit salutes President Barack Obama as the First African American elected President of the United States and Michele Obama as the first African American First Lady.

“Hail to the Chief” features a remarkable series of photographs taken in Washington, DC, on the inauguration day of Barack Obama and includes photos taken while running for President during his visit to Rancho Cienega Recreation Center located in Los Angeles’ 10th Council District.

“President Barack Obama’s election symbolizes the progress that African Americans have made in our nation,” said Wesson. “His inauguration was a special moment in our nation’s history and these photographs capture the excitement and promise of the Obama presidency.”

The photographers of the Presidential Inaugural are provided courtesy of the Perfect Exposure Gallery and include the work of gallery owner Armondo Arorizo, Adrian Sanchez-Gonzalez, Burt Harris, Heng Qi, Bill Auth and Paul Morse.

Images from the Rancho Cienega event were captured by Doug Herman and Ian Foxx.

The “Hail to the Chief” exhibit also offers an informative exposition of Air Force One, The US Marine Band, also known as “the President’s Own” and the office of the First Lady.

“I appreciate the opportunity to bring this great exhibit to the 10th Council District and in a location that will enable more people in the community to enjoy the amazing images that these talented artists captured on that historic occasion,” said Wesson.

Joining Councilmember Wesson in making the exhibit possible were the City of Los Angeles and the Office of the President of the United States.

The exhibit is free of charge to the public and will run through June, 2010. The Nate Holden Performing Arts Center is located at 4718 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016.
