BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -

Fifteen local artists showcased 30 different works of art which highlighted Binghamton's history and future. The "Art of Binghamton" exhibit at the Art Mission and Theater celebrated the city's 150 year history.

"It shows the creative viewpoint of the locals, of the hometown," said Matthew Card, Gallery Curator. He gathered paintings, drawings, and photographs for the exhibit.

Among those featured was Greg Milunich, a photographer from Binghamton who had one of his famous colorized historical pictures on display.

"Binghamton is really a beautiful and historic city if you just take a minute to look and see what's really around you," said Milunich.
