Celebrate North Carolina: Faces and Places, an initiative of the Office of First Gentleman Bob Eaves and arranged in cooperation with the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, contains images from professional and amateur photographers and from the State Archives.


There are two versions of the exhibit being shown in North Carolina:  the eastern touring exhibit and the western touring exhibit.  The Mauney Memorial Library in Kings Mountain will host the western exhibition from August 14 through September 2,  2010.


The exhibit contains thirty images, including four 2009 State Fair winners, eight from the State Archives in Raleigh, and eighteen from the North Carolina Press Photographers Association.  Altogether twenty-seven libraries and three museums in North Carolina will host the exhibit.  Exhibition locations for the two-year tour were chosen by invitation to ensure geographic distribution.
