Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said there will be a private memorial service for Joe Schwartz at Atascadero Lake.
A public memorial for folk photographer Joe Schwartz is planned for 2:30 p.m. April 14 at the Pavilion on the Lake in Atascadero, the city confirmed Wednesday.
The public memorial will be hosted by his family.
Schwartz, an Atascadero resident, died March 13. The internationally known photographer would have turned 100 years old in July.
Never miss a local story.
He documented America's "have-nots" from the 1930s to the 1980s, and his work will be included in the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture, which is under construction in Washington, D.C., and expected to be completed in 2015.
The city of Atascadero also honored Schwartz and his photography with a series of community events in February.
“We are glad we were able to celebrate Joe’s near hundred years and all of his amazing work in February along with Atascadero’s centennial, and that he was able to attend that event. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family,” said Audrey Banks, a management analyst with the city of Atascadero who helped organize the community events.
