    • “Countdown to Zero: Defeating Disease”
      Exhibit January 11, 2017-December 16, 2017

      Only one human disease, smallpox, has ever been eradicated. But soon a second infection will join the list: Guinea worm disease, a painful and debilitating condition caused by the Guinea worm—known to many as the “fiery serpent”. There is no medicine to cure Guinea worm disease and no vaccine to prevent it. Yet it can be stopped. This exhibition shows the heroic efforts throughout history to eradicate, eliminate, and control disease, including the Carter Center-led campaign to wipe out Guinea worm.

      Jimmy Webb’s words have been sung to his music by a rich and deep roster of pop artists, including Glen Campbell, Art Garfunkel, Frank Sinatra, Donna Summer and Linda Ronstadt. He’s the only artist ever to win Grammy Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration, and his chart-topping career has, so far, lasted fifty years, most recently with a Kanye West rap hit and a new classical nocturne.

      Now, in his first memoir, Webb delivers a snapshot of his life from 1955 to 1970, from simple and sere Oklahoma to fast and fantastical Los Angeles, from the crucible of his family to the top of his longed-for profession.
