Spirit of Beacon Photography Exhibit

Call for Photography: Show us the Spirit of Beacon!

What does The Spirit of Beacon mean to you?

The Howland Public Library and the Spirit of Beacon Day Committee are looking for photographs that best capture the essence of The Spirit of Beacon. What makes our community so unique? Can you capture it in an image? Is it the beautiful mountains, the historic architecture, the connection to the river, the vibrant community, all of the above or something else? Share your vision with us! Photographers of ALL ages and skill levels are invited to submit their original photos.
Selected photos will be exhibited in the Community Room Exhibit Space at the Howland Public Library in Beacon, NY during the month of September as part of the Spirit of Beacon celebration. A reception for the Community will be held on September 8th.
