Since 1942, just two Pulitzer photography prizes have been awarded out of the millions of photographs in the newspapers every year capturing historic moments around the world, all exhibited here. “The pictures show the brutalities of our age, but also record tender and compassionate moments,” says show creator Cyma Rubin, a New York television producer, in a press release. “Shown together in the exhibition, the photographs make us think about the realities of world events. Anyone who views the exhibition will be changed by the experience.” Rubin will discuss her documentary Moment of Impact: Stories of the Pulitzer Prize Photographs, April 9 at 11a.m. Reservations required.
