Backyard photos

The Delta Cultural Center is seeking photos from libraries, museums and Delta residents depicting leisure activities in residential backyard settings, including holiday and birthday celebrations, for a "community curated" addition to "Patios, Pools & the Invention of the American Backyard."

The Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, which goes on display in mid-April at the center, 141 Cherry St., Helena-West Helena, focuses on the evolution of the household backyard following the end of World War II.

Curator Drew Ulrich says the center will display the photos through social media channels and will prospectively include them in a public digital photo gallery that will be part of the exhibition inside the Visitor Center's central gallery.

Submit photos via email to Call (870) 338-5649.
