The public is invited to experience North Carolina history through the lens of Wilmington-born photographer, Hugh Morton, at this free exhibit in the Ticket Sales Gallery. Hugh Morton (1921–2006) was a prolific photographer who created an estimated quarter-million negatives and transparencies during his lifetime. During his career, Morton’s photographs were showcased in countless publications throughout eight decades. The exhibit highlights Morton’s love for his home state’s people, scenery and history and features dozens of his lesser or unknown photographs alongside published classics. The exhibition features 77 photographs from the larger original exhibition of nearly ninety images and is on loan from the Wilson Special Collections Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
