Whether you lean right, left, or somewhere in between, election seasons have the power to stir up feelings of patriotism, passion, and even nostalgia. As current debates on campaign spending and voter rights call attention to the elections of the past, Grand Circle Gallery and the Robert Klein Gallery of Boston present a look back at presidential campaigns in Every Four Years.

Through vintage photographs and prints from 1948 to 2008, this collaborative exhibit explores the public and private sides of presidential candidates, as well as pivotal moments in voting and Civil Rights for Americans over the years. Campaign posters from the Library of Congress and an annotated presidential timeline round out the retrospective.

For historical accuracy, the caption on the picture of Jimmy Carter is wrong. I am the guy in the picture with the 70s hair and the sunglasses. This picture was taken in Brooksville, Florida about two weeks before the March 9th primary in 1976. I was a field coordinator for the campaign in several states during 1975-76. Later, I lived in Boston 1982-84 while at Harvard Business School. I live in my native Georgia now - running non-profit organizations. I still love Boston and visit whenever I can. - Jim Langford

Hi Jim, Thanks so much for correcting my caption mixup. How incredible it must have been on the campaign trail in '75-76! This shot must bring back some memories for you. Hope you'll get to visit us here at Grand Circle Gallery the next time you're in Boston. Best, Shirley
