Selma residents will get an opportunity to see how life was lived years ago in the Queen City, when the Old Depot Museum hosts an art show featuring photographs from Billy Rosenberg.

The show is a good experience for people in the commuity, because it will give them the chance to reflect on times gone by. It also allows people to take home memories of days past by purchasing photographs for a excellent cause.

The money raised will fund the museum, which needs the proceeds to help preserve the rich history of Selma. While museum has made a lot of progress in the past two years, but there is more room for improvement.

Selma residents should help out by showing their support for Selma’s heritage and the museum’s effort to highlight historic events that made this city what it is today.

The show will also feature local artist Cindy Stoudenmire, and one of her original oil paintings will be auctioned off.

The art show is $20 and is being held Thursday, Jan. 29 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advanced or at the door.
