"Michael Morand has been in New Haven since about 10,214 days ago."
So says the announcement of a new photo exhibit at the New Haven Free Public Library Gallery, 133 Elm St.
Morand, - yes, that's @MimoCT to tweeps - "gets around and has been on stage, in front of the cameras or at the microphone more than a few times in a variety of roles – as an alderman, activist, chamber of commerce chair, library board member, and university representative," the announcement says.
Luckily for those with an eye toward New Haven's loveliness, "Once in a while, though, he’s behind the camera."
The new show at the New Haven Free Public Library "offers a selection of some of the shots he’s taken in recent years as part of his ongoing, deeply rooted affection for the Elm City," according to show organizers.
It "expresses Michael’s fundamental belief that there is no better place to be, to live, to learn and to grow than our beloved community of New Haven."
The show runs through Oct. 14. Gallery hours are: Monday: 12 - 8 p.m.; Tuesday - Thursday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday - Saturday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sunday: closed.
Gallery Curator: Johnes Ruta
