Innovation in the Imaging Capital
From September 20, 2014 through January 4, 2015 in Special Exhibition Galleries
Innovation in the Imaging Capital celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of Rochester, New York. For decades, Rochester was known as the imaging capital of the world, and its scientists and engineers were awarded more patents per capita than nearly any other city in the United States. Innovation and invention by Rochester's imaging companies paved the way for the world we now live in, from medical testing to space exploration, digital capture and transmission, and more. The exhibition will highlight Rochester's major contributions to the imaging story, showing technology of today made possible by inventions from Kodak, Xerox, and Bausch & Lomb.
This exhibition pays tribute to the accomplishments of the Rochesterians that transformed imaging, and tells their story through photographs, related technology, business documents, and correspondence from the Eastman House collection.
