More than 115,000 view 'Sixties' exhibit
Mark Gregory, staff writer
The Sentinel-Record
  With apologies to the Grateful Dead, what a long strange trip it's been.

Submitted photo
One of the historic photographs on display in "White House Photographs: The Clinton Years, 1993 - 2001" will be this image of the former president's meeting with Nelson Mandela. The photograph is courtesy of the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Foundation, Clinton Materials Project, National Archives and Records Administration and Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission.
  After a six-month run at the Hot Springs Civic & Convention Center, "Portrait of an Era: Robert Altman's Sixties" gives way next week to a one-of-a-kind exhibit of photographs that hung in the White House during the Clinton presidency.

  Altman's "Sixties" was seen by 115,601 people during its run at the center, according to the Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission.

  "White House Photographs: The Clinton Years, 1993 - 2001," officially opens at the center with a public reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday. The exhibit runs through Sept. 6.

  Steve Arrison, the commission's executive director, said he expects even more people will view the Clinton exhibit, which was created in cooperation with the Clinton Materials Project, National Archives and Records Administration and William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Foundation.

  It will be the only display of items from the Clinton presidency that will be made available to the public during the spring and summer.

  Altman, not to be confused with the movie director of the same name, is former chief staff photographer for Rolling Stone and author of an online photographic gallery that's considered one of the best of its type on the Web.

  Altman, Arrison and the center's staff hand-picked the images for the exhibit. The collection will become a traveling exhibit once it leaves the center.

  The exhibit had more of an edge, by far, than the first two exhibits at the center, which were by Harry Benson.

  Benson rose to fame photographing The Beatles on their first trip to America and first families from presidents Kennedy to Clinton, which were the subjects of the first two exhibits.

  "Altman's photographs of 1960s cultural icons and landmark events touched a responsive chord among the thousands of convention delegates and other members of the public who came to see them," Arrison said.

  "I believe additional interest in the photos was stimulated by the fact that some of the people in the photographs, such as George Harrison and author Ken Kesey, passed away during the exhibit."

  A reception for Altman in January drew hundreds of people to the center.

  On his Web site, http://www2.cea.edu/robert/, Altman thanked Arrison and his "accomplished staff," who have been "intelligent, sensitive and incredibly supportive in mounting this show."

The Clinton exhibit will feature 70 large, framed photographs drawn from a collection of two million photographs made during the president's two terms in office.  The images include historic photographs, such as the former president's meeting with Nelson Mandela, personal pictures of the president jogging and one of him attending The Ultimate Class Reunion for alumni of Hot Springs High School.

  There are photos of the president playing the saxophone and meeting with the United States' women's Olympic gymnastics team.

  The majority of the photographs, about 95 percent, hung in the White House complex, which includes the White House, the West Wing, the East Wing and both the old and new Executive Office buildings.
