Obama, An Intimate Portrait [Townsquare Sunday]
For eight years, White House Photographer Pete Souza recorded the history of the Obama Administration with photos of the President and the First Family. Those photos were part of a best-selling book, "Obama, An Intimate Portrait," authored by Souza, who is a Dartmouth native. Fifty of those historic pictures will be on display next month at the New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks downtown. Museum Director, Ashley Occhino visits Townsquare Sunday this weekend to discuss the exhibit, and share details of an Opening Reception, where Pete Souza will be present. She also shares the latest happenings at the Art Museum.
