A photo exhibit at the Museum of African American History in Boston is coming to a close soon, but two closing receptions next week offer an excuse to see the show before it ends.
The exhibit is "From Iowa to the White House: Historic Photographs of President Barack Obama" and features images taken by Globe columnist Derrick Jackson as he covered the 2008 presidential campaign.
The exhibit ends March 20, but there will be two opportunities to see the photos and meet Derrick: At a reception from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Thursday (March 18), and from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday (March 20), closing day.
The Thursday evening reception will feature music by Serena Creary, a composer and violist, accompanied by the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra of the New England Conservatory; a reading by Nubia Smith-Whitaker, a first-year Wellesley College student who was a 2004 Democratic National Convention "Kids for Kerry" podium speaker, and a talk by Derrick.
The museum address is 46 Joy St. on Beacon Hill; it is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
