“Welty”, an exhibit featuring photographs by Eudora Welty, will be on display in ECCC’s Burton Library weekdays from April 2 to April 27. There will be an Open House on Thursday, April 5, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. During the early 1930s, Welty traveled across Mississippi as a publicist for the Works Progress Administration and used the opportunity to take hundreds of photographs of her native state. The exhibit juxtaposes some of those photographs with excerpts from her writing to show the relationship between her source material and her writing. The exhibit “Welty” comprises 14 photographs and passages from her books such as The Wide Net, Delta Wedding, The Golden Apples, A Curtain of Green, and Some Notes on River Country. The photographs were selected from more than 1,200 negatives Welty donated to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Photographs by Eudora Welty are courtesy of Eudora Welty L.L.C. and the Eudora Welty Collection, Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
