Our favorite neighborhood historian, Paul Dorpat, wrote to tell us that the “Now and Then” repeat photography exhibit at the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) is winding down and will close when the museum closes its McCurdy Park location in Montlake in June. If you haven’t gone to it yet, you’ve got an opportunity to see it for free on Tuesday evening (April 24) from 5:30PM to 8:30PM.
The “Now and Then” exhibit features Paul’s time lapse videos he took during 25 repeated walks in Wallingford between 2006-2010 (You can see a map of these repeated walks below. He chose 25 animations from the 450 he took). In addition to Wallingford, the repeat photography exhibit features now and then photos from Seattle and other parts of Washington State, as well as some from Paris.
The best part of this free viewing is that it’s in conjunction with an awards ceremony presented by the Association of King County Historical Organizations (AKCHO) whereby Mr. Dorpat will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement award for, according to him, “being around long enough”. Congratulations, Paul!
MOHAI is located in McCurdy Park (2700 24th Ave. E.) in Seattle’s Montlake neighborhood and is open 10 AM to 5 PM every day of the week. For further information on MOHAI including special programs and admission rates, please visit www.seattlehistory.org or call 206-324-1126.
