Contemporary Art at Historic Northampton
Opening August 12, 2016 is the Contemporary Art at Historic Northampton exhibition, The Norwood Engineering Building: A Florence Landmark. Built in 1870, the building has been occupied almost continuously by business people and local entrepreneurs. Peter Norman and Paul Griffin have photographed the building's current occupants at work and have researched historic photographs and ephemera to document the building's previous occupants.
