Naperville, IL — In recognition of the profound impact baby boomers have had on the world, Naper Settlement is proud to present the Newseum’s traveling exhibit “The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders,” which features 19 large-format portraits of influential baby boomers — one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964. The “Boomer List” exhibit will be on view from Jan. 18 to March 19. Visitors will experience the work of award-winning photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and the boomers who reflect the depth, diversity and talent of their generation. This exhibit is free with daily museum admission, which is $5.25 adults, $4.75 seniors (62+) and $4 youth (4-12). Naperville residents (with proof of residency) and members receive free admission.

“We are extremely excited to be hosting ‘The Boomer List,’” said Director of Innovation and Experience, Lance Tawzer. “Making its Midwest premiere at Naper Settlement, we have a unique opportunity to provide a world-class, nationally touring exhibit to our community, and you do not need to be a boomer to enjoy this show. It is easy to be inspired by the boomer generation’s contributions to our country and culture.”

The baby boomer generation is known for shaking up attitudes about sex, race and politics, and influencing everything from science and technology to art and music. The 19 men and women selected for “The Boomer List,” include actor Samuel L. Jackson, co-founder of Apple Computer Steve Wozniak, environmentalist Erin Brockovich and AIDS activist Peter Staley.
