I just received this press release and thought I'd pass it along......andy

MAKING OF A GOVERNORAn overwhelming installation revealing the human drama underlying the campaign experience. Immerse yourself.
DECEMBER 19, 2006 – “Making of a Governor” takes you into the adrenaline-fueled rat-a-tat journey of the 2006 New York gubernatorial race. From the Bronx to Buffalo, from the West Side to Watertown, photographers Marius Muresanu and Eric Goeres were given unprecedented access into the nerve center of the Spitzer campaign. The kickoff, the speeches, the bus tours, the strategy sessions, the debates, the press conferences, the conventions, the election, and all the peculiar madness between. And while on the campaign trail, "Making of a Governor" will give you some important glimpses into the rear view mirror of New York's strange and lively gubernatorial campaign history. Meet “Wild Bill” Donovan, The Incurable Optimist Howard J. Samuels, Al Smith, Nelson “Rocky” Rockefeller, and many others who sought the highest office in the state - the Communists, Progressives, Bull Moose, and Law Preservationists - even Grandpa Munster (for the Green Party) – who have made New York’s Gubernatorial race unlike any other. Jordan Wright, Director of the Museum of Democracy tells this part of the story, drawing on the Museum's incredible collection of political memorabilia. Presented by Manhattan’s Arts Council – LMCC, "Making of a Governor" will run in Governor Spitzer's inaugural month, January 8th through January 21st, 2007 in the magnificent Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal. More than 125,000 commuters and 500,000 visitors come to Grand Central each day, so countless New Yorkers will have an opportunity to experience the 500+ photographs and multimedia presentations that comprise this compelling exhibit.More:
