O. Winston Link Museum Celebrates 10 Years

Posted:

Roanoke, VA - The O. Winston Link Museum, in Roanoke, is celebrating its ten year anniversary with a very special exhibit of rarely seen photos from the famous train photographer but they aren't the types of photos you would expect.

24 photos from the legend's private collection are this exhibit's focus.

The subjects cover industrial, commercial and personal subjects.

Today was a busy day getting ready for staff.

"We always try and pick up on a pretty specific mid-American aesthetic and we thought all of these images kind of lived up to that," said museum director Mike McNeil.

The exhibit's grand opening is Friday and Saturday where admission is free.

Plenty of kid's activities are planned including tours of Link's favorite locomotive - the 1218!

The exhibit itself runs through April.
