The Palos Verdes Art Center / Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education is pleased to announce that Celebrate Hope, featuring exclusive photographs by Anna Wilding when she was based at the White House during the Obama Administration, will be on display at The Palos Verdes Art Center Museum in Rancho Palos Verdes, California through Sunday, July 7. A rare opportunity to experience the “People’s House” through up-close-and-personal images of First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama as they inhabit the West and East Wings, Celebrate Hope returns to Southern California after a successful showing in Alhambra earlier this year.
Considered iconic both for her work on screen and behind the lens as an actress, comedian, writer, producer, director, and still photographer, Anna Wilding served as a member of the White House press corps from 2015 to February 2017, where she worked as a photographer and occasional reporter for the Herald de Paris, Huffington Post and an Israeli television network. Her photos were shared worldwide through Splash News, while some of her images of Michelle Obama appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Wilding hopes to bring Celebrate Hope to other U.S. venues—and, possibly, other countries—later in 2019. She will discuss the exhibit, as well as share a few of the back stories behind the images, when she joins host Ed Robertson for the June 21-23 edition of TV Confidential.
