About: Durham County Library will host Caitlin Margaret Kelly, public programs director of the Power Plant Gallery, for a presentation and discussion on their current exhibition, Phone Home Durham, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

Phone Home Durham examines the increasing use of mobile phone cameras, allowing users to possess both a camera and photo archive in their pocket. To create the exhibition, the Power Plant Gallery invited mobile phone photographers to submit images of Durham County taken with mobile phone cameras or other handheld devices. With support from Museo Digital Fine Art Media, a select number of photographs will be printed for inclusion in the Archives of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Library at Duke University.

Submissions of cell phone photographs of Durham County will be accepted through August 22. Kelly will discuss the requirements and will be available to assist those who want to submit photographs at the program.

This program is presented and co-sponsored by Durham Library Foundation and the Power Plant Gallery, a laboratory for the arts at Duke University, located at the American Tobacco Campus. For more information, contact Joanne Abel at 919-560-0268 or visit
