A collection of some of the state’s most historic photographs will be on display at Sacramento State from March 3 to June 24 in the University Library Gallery. The exhibit, “The Triumph of Helios: Photographic Treasures of the California State Library,” is part of the University’s 14 th annual Festival of the Arts celebration.

The exhibit features examples of 19 th century photography from the California State Library’s collection. It will include many rare and beautiful photographs such as daguerreotypes from the Gold Rush era, ambrotypes, tintypes and large scale albumen prints by Carleton Watkins, Eadweard Muybridge and I. W. Taber. Other interesting examples include autochromes, the first-full color photographs and goldtones.

The collection will also feature photographic equipment from the 19 th century and detailed explanations of how the photographs were made.

Gary Kurutz, curator of Special Collections at the California State Library, will speak about the exhibit at 6:30 p.m. on March 8 in the University Union’s Hinde Auditorium.

The University Library Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. For more information call the Library Gallery at (916) 278-4189. For media assistance contact the Public Affairs Office at (916) 278-6156.
