LONG BEACH...Loiter Galleries opens its new show “EXTRA EXTRA: News as Art” on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at The Streets in Long Beach, Calif. The ripped from the headlines historic collection features exciting, world-changing newspaper front pages collected by avid “Newsie” Sam Saposnek. Attending the opening from left is Saposnek’s grandson and exhibition curator Steve Golden, and Loiter Galleries co-proprietors Monica Fleming and Vinny Picardi.

The show, “EXTRA EXTRA: News as Art,” runs from March 23 through April. Before the days of cable news and the 24-hour news cycle, the world got its news from daily newspapers. The front pages are a time capsule of events that shaped the world. Saposnek began his career in the newspaper business at the young age of seven and spent his entire career in the print business. He loved the smell of news ink, claiming it ran through his veins, and he carefully preserved what he thought would be history making front pages.

Loiter Galleries is a pop-up space at The Streets in downtown Long Beach whose mission is to support local artists through their shared vision. The pop-up nature of Loiter provides local artists, who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity, with a place to showcase their work at a low cost. Loiter Galleries is located at 375 North Promenade in Long Beach. Photos:Loiter Galleries
