The photo in the design is a relatively well-known image of Lincoln, often called “the Gettysburg photo” because it was taken very close to date of the Gettysburg Address. Lincoln’s deep careworn features and deep-set eyes are unforgettable.
As part of its Lincoln exhibit and its annual Civil War Exposition, Andrew Carnegie Free Library is hosting a performance of Aaron Copland’s A Lincoln Portrait, conducted by H. Robert Reynolds and read by David Conrad.
For the back I’ve screened a posterized image of the same photo.
This is one of my favorite works, though I’ve never enjoyed it live. I get to hear it, see it, photograph it and perhaps sketch it—a fully-realized experience for me!
