MAIN LIBRARY EXHIBIT

Al Kaplan's Provincetown

July 11 - September 16, 2017

Discover the unique visual insight of New Bedford-raised photojournalist Al Kaplan (1942-2009), being exhibited in the city of his birth for the first time.  In the early 1960s Kaplan spent summers Provincetown, Massachusetts, capturing on black and white 35mm film a village on the cusp of changes which would soon engulf the entire country. 

Funding for Al Kaplan’s Provincetown was provided in part by a grant from the New Bedford Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
