Bayou City Noir: The Photography of Marvin Zindler

Houston Arts and Media and The Museum of Printing History are partnering to present a very special exhibition entitled Bayou City Noir: The Photography of Marvin Zindler. This exhibition will introduce audiences to the man who prowled Houston's streets as a crime beat photographer for the now defunct daily newspaper Houston Press, decades before he became the crusading activist with the white wig and the blue glasses. It was a time when most considered Houston to be the nation’s murder capital, and when the city’s seedier side could be readily found near the heart of downtown. The exhibition is appearing at Houston’s Museum of Printing History from March 24, 2011 – August 13, 2011.

Dates to note

Closing Party - August 13 from 6 to 8 pm- Last chance to bid on the photographs in the exhibit and take them home.Only one print of each is available, so this is a unique opportunity! Do not miss your chance to own some Housotn history.

Story Sloane's Gallery has graciously provided photo printing for this exhibit.
