“Ghosts of Merced County: Recreating Historical Moments”
Exhibit Opening on October 20, 2016
Merced County Courthouse Museum will open “Ghosts of Merced County: Recreating Historical Moments” exhibit on Thursday, October 20 at 5:00 p.m. In the spirit of this Halloween season, we are going to have some fun with vintage photos by recreating historic moments with modern photos. Members of the Merced Camera Club have taken images of locations today and overlaid them with people-filled images from around the turn of the 20th Century. Side by side, the “Then” photos and overlaying “Now” photos have created a haunting presentation. At the exhibit opening, the Camera Club president Sam Shaw will give a talk about how to create haunting images at 6 p.m. and followed by Andy Tolsma’s video presentation titled, “Ghostly Images of Merced County.” The event is free to the public. For more information, please contact the Courthouse Museum at 209-723-2401.
